Fistula between retroesophageal subclavian artery and esophagus is rare but a fatal complication. The purpose of this case study is to describe a case of 47-year old male presented with intracranial hemorrhage being required a long stay in the intensive care unit and to demonstrate the importance of surveillance patients requiring prolonged nasogastric tube. Recognition of this aberrant artery is critical for the prevention of these catastrophic events.
