Persistent tracheo-cutaneous fistula, or persistent tracheal stoma, is a potential late complication of a tracheostomy. It commonly occurs in children due to a failure of spontaneous closure after decannulation. In adults, however, this is relatively less common. Described is a case of a 38-year-old man who, despite undergoing early and successful decannulation, presented with a persistent tracheal stoma due to pulmonary tuberculosis.

Persistan trakeo-kutanöz fistül veya persistan trakeal stoma, trakeostominin geç bir komplikasyonudur. Trakeokutanöz fistül, çocuklarda, kanül çıkarıldıktan sonra trakeostominin spontan kapanmasının başarısız olmasından dolayı yaygın olarak görülmektedir. Ancak yetişkinlerde, bu nispeten daha az yaygındır. Erken ve başarılı dekanülasyona rağmen akciğer tüberkülozu nedeniyle kalıcı trakeal stoma ile başvuran 38 yaşında bir erkek hastayı sunuyoruz.
