Feeding jejunostomy is done as a part of major upper gastrointestinal surgeries including oesophagectomy. The procedure is associated with various mechanical, nutritional, infective and metabolic complications. Complete enteral migration is a very rare complication. We describe the rare occurrence of complete internal dislodgement and migration of enteral feeding tube in a 55-year-old lady who underwent transthoracic oesophagectomy for oesophgaeal carcinoma with gastric pull-up and feeding jejunostomy and our experience with conservative management of this condition.
