Abstract
We report a case of a18-year-old male with double aortic arch who underwent surgery for bleeding from a left bulbar cavernous angioma of the medulla oblongata. A tracheostomy tube was positioned but after several days the patient died because of a tracheo-esophageal fistula with left aortic arch erosion due to the decubitus of the tube cuff.

Key words: double aortic arch, tracheostomy contraindication, hemorrhage, tracheal fistula aorto, tracheal fistula esophageal
