COLOUTERINE FISTULA WITH A FOREIGN BODY
AbstractForeign bodies in vagina are known to have been inserted by the patient herself or by some otherperson; as an aid to masturbation, sexual intercourse or sexual assault. The two most commonitems retained in adult females are tampons and burst condoms. Since long, vaginal deliveries andObstetric and Gynaecological interventions have been associated with vesicovaginal andrectovaginal fistulae. We present a case of a 24 years old Pakistani woman with a colouterinefistula. Although vesicouterine fistulae have rarely been reported previously, world-literature hasonly a few documented cases of colouterine fistula.Keywords: Colouterine fistula, fistula, primary repair
