The management of gastrointestinal fistula still remains a tough challenge to most of surgeons. It is associated with high mortality and morbidity. The following case is biliary-enteric anastomosis fistula, with complicated and severe complications: sepsis, hemorrhage of digestive tract, malnutrition and disorder of electrolyte. Finally, the fistula closed by actively a bundle of therapeutic methods without operation. In this paper, we focus on two aspects of fistula management, source control and enteral nutrition. Adequate source control plays the most important role in management of fistula, especially with sump drainage tube. Enteral nutrition should be considered as possible as we can. We should try our best to establish a route delivering enteral nutrition in intricate situation of gastrointestinal fistula patient.
