The case history is presented of a seventeen year old female with a complicated postoperative course following a cesarean section. The patient expired following a massive upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage secondary to erosion of an indwelling nasogastric tube through the esophagus into an aberrant right subclavian artery. Emphasis is placed on an aggressive diagnostic approach to this problem using endoscopy.
