Abstract

A full-term newborn male infant presented with dyspnea and cleft lip and palate. He was thought to have esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula. He underwent bronchoscopy before operation that showed a laryngotracheoesophageal cleft (LTEC) type III. The left main bronchus originated from the lower esophagus. His diagnosis was communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformation (CBPFM) type IA associated with LTEC type III. Enhanced chest computed tomographic scan showed the left pulmonary artery originated from the descending aorta. Staged operations were indicated. At first, reconstruction of the left pulmonary artery was done at 3 months of age. Then at 6 months of age, operations for LTEC (tracheoplasty and esophagostomy) and CBPFM left bronchoplasty were performed. Reconstruction of esophagus was performed at age of 1 year. He is now 3 years old and doing well with a mild degree of bronchomalacia. This is the first report of total reconstruction of CBPFM type IA associated with LTEC.
