H-type tracheoesophageal fistula is rare. Although symptoms are present from birth, its rarity and overlap of symptoms with other respiratory conditions makes diagnosis difficult and delayed. We report a case of H-type fistula in a 13-year-old girl that was detected incidentally during investigations for achalasia cardia.
