In brief: Inflammation/tumor

A fistulous connection between these organs would most commonly form as a result of marked inflammation in one of the organs.
This causes the two to stick together, and one erodes into the other. Most commonly this occurs from diverticulitis of the colon, but certainly other inflammatory bowel diseases could be responsible also. The caveat is to rule out a cancer which could also erode.
