Congenital bronchobiliary fistula

Common Name(s)

Congenital bronchobiliary fistula

Congenital bronchobiliary fistula is a rare condition where the respiratory system (the organs used for breathing) and the biliary system (the organs used to transport bile, a substance produced by the body that aids in digestion) are abnormally connected. Normally, the two systems do not directly meet. People born with this condition often get infections that affect breathing, such as pneumonia. The condition is diagnosed by a thorough examination of the bronchus (the main tube that air travels through to get to the lungs) with an endoscope. An endoscope is a camera that can be inserted into the body to examine internal organs. Most congenital bronchobiliary fistulas can be safely removed through surgery. Talk with your doctor if your baby has been diagnosed with congenital bronchobiliary fistula to determine the best treatment plan.
