Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) with or without associated esophageal atresia (EA) in the neonate is challenging to diagnose and manage its complications like aspiration, respiratory distress, and other associated anomalies. To stabilize, ventilate and prepare for surgical correction, understanding the H-nature of disease and anticipation of problems and their management will improve survival. We present a newborn with tracheoesophageal fistula without atresia from resource-limited settings and lessons we learned from the case.
