LOSADA M, HÉCTOR; VIAL G, MANUEL; MANTEROLA D, CARLOS  y  PINEDA N, VIVIAN. Bronchobiliary fistula secondary to a hepatic hydatid cyst in transit to the thorax: Report of one case. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2006, vol.58, n.3, pp.224-227. ISSN 0718-4026.

We report a 49 years old female presenting with productive cough, expectoration of purulent bile and respiratory failure. An emergency ultrasound showed a lesion with mixed echogenicity in the right hepatic lobe with dilatation of intra and extrahepatic biliary tract. The patient was operated and an abscessed hydatid cyst was found, with a fistula communicating with the right lower lung lobe. A partial cystectomy and choledocostomy was performed. The postoperative evolution was satisfactory and six months after operation, the patient is asymptomatic and her chest X ray and abdominal ultrasound are normal

Palabras clave : Bronchobiliary fistula; hydatid cyst; cystectomy.
