Abstract

Enterocutaneous fistulas are potentially life-threatening complications of gastrointestinal surgery. Nutritional support is the mainstay of management. We report a 32-year-old man who developed an enterocutaneous fistula following surgery for ulcerative colitis. Enteral feeding was attempted by introducing a Foley's catheter through the midjejunal fistula.
