ABSTRACT
This brief historical data of a patient dying of severe hematemesis as a result of broncho-esophage-aortal fistula in primary pulmonary cavitating carcinoma is presented. It indicates that the elastic wall of the arteries even that of the aorta, is not a barrier to the penetration of the malignant-cells. The neoplasm was in an advanced stage with gross vascular involvement but distant metastases did not occur even in microscopic examination. Liomyoma of the uterus was associated with lung carcinoma.
