Esophageal cancer has a bad prognosis because of late diagnosis. The rate of Survival is very low. Palliative treatment is frequently made. The aim of the treatment is to allow feeding, and treat some complications likes breathing troubles. We report two cases of esotracheal fistulae secondary to esophageal cancer. The esophageal fistula was successfully treated by esotracheal prosthesis.
