Abstract

We report a case of group F streptococcal pericarditis, the source of which was found to be an esophagomediastinal fistula arising from a midesophageal diverticulum. The patient presented subacutely and had no preexisting symptoms of esophageal disease. Antibiotic therapy, surgical drainage, pericardiectomy, and esophageal myotomy led to a successful outcome.
