It is most often the consequence of an inflammatory and infectious process of digestive origin and occurs during sigmoid diverticulitis and Crohn's disease.
Pneumaturia and fecaluria represent the pathognomonic clinical signs of urodigestive fistulas, but they are present in only 50% of cases.
Because of high pressure in the intestine, the fistula most often works from the intestine to the bladder except when there is an obstacle on the lower urinary tract, as was the case with our patient.
The patient was put on medical treatment for his obstructive urinary symptomatology with good evolution.
