In this case report, the treatment history of a woman with congenital esophageal atresia is presented. She underwent thoracotomy immediately after birth, but the distance between two atresic parts of the esophagus (7cm) did not allow for a primary anastomosis. Gastric and salivary fistulas were constructed. A salivary fistula was made in the cervical part of the esophagus. For 21 years, the patient received nutrition only by gastrostomy. Her physical and mental conditions were normal. She underwent esophageal reconstruction of the last segment of the ileum, coecum, and ascending colon and began oral feeding when she was 21 years old.
