Abstract PURPOSE: A case of an adult patient with the anorectal malformation of a rectovestibular fistula successfully repaired by performing a posterior sagittal anorectoplasty is reported. This case should increase the awareness of both primary and secondary anorectal malformations in the adult patient. METHODS: Management and outcome of an adult patient who presented with a rectovaginal fistula and underwent primary operative correction of her anorectal malformation using posterior sagittal anorectoplasty is reviewed. RESULTS: Total continence was achieved in an adult patient undergoing primary repair of a rectovaginal fistula using posterior sagittal anorectoplasty. CONCLUSION: Posterior sagittal anorectoplasty can be successfully performed in the adult patient for a primary repair of anorectal malformations. This operation should be considered in patients who have undergone another prior operative procedure with less than optimum function and now desire a secondary corrective procedure.
