After reviewing all of our hospital admittances, this paper presents two cases of nephrobronchial fistula (NBF) occurring in two patients, one with renal abscess-like granulomatous pathology and one with xantogranulomatous pyelonephritis (XGP). After commenting on these cases and including iconography, among which a fistulography, very rare in this type of cases, should be emphasized, the coincidence of the three microorganisms (and the presence of Morganella morganii) in lung cultures, and kidney in one case, is recorded. The paper remarks on the hidden clinical development, modes of presentations and the time of diagnosis which was pre-operative. Also clinical, diagnostic and behaviour of the NBFs and etiological diseases is reviewed.
