Core Tip Aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare cause of upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. We present a case of massive upper GI bleeding caused by AEF after thoracic aortic stent grafting. Fever was the main clinical manifestation in the early stage accompanied by later epigastric discomfort. Chest computed tomography showed pulmonary infection and pleural effusion; pleural effusion tests showed empyema. Esophageal endoscopy revealed a large esophageal ulcer. Pulmonary infection and empyema were controlled by antibiotics and symptomatic treatment. However, the patient developed hematemesis and melena (conservative treatment and emergency endoscopic hemostasis were ineffective), subsequently suffering hemorrhagic shock, and discontinued further treatment.
