We report a case of an infant surviving aortoesophageal fistula secondary to lithium cell battery ingestion. In the setting of a delayed vascular complication, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are essential to establishing the correct diagnosis and surgical management. Management of children after battery ingestion must be guided by a high index of clinical suspicion.
