Abstract BACKGROUND: Uterocutaneous fistula is a rare condition that may be difficult to manage. CASE: A young woman who underwent surgical intervention for cryptomenorrhea 3 years ago developed menstrual discharge from the abdominal scar. A fistulous tract leading from the infraumbilical midline scar to the uterus was demonstrated on contrast study. Genital examination revealed vaginal agenesis. A vaginoplasty was performed as the first stage. This was followed one year later by excision of the fistulous tract and establishment of cervicovaginal communication. The patient is now menstruating from the vaginal passage. CONCLUSION: This case shows that a stepwise, well-planned, and well-executed procedure can lead to a satisfactory repair of an uterocutaneous fistula.
