We describe a case of H-type rectovaginal fistula associated with the Currarino triad (anorectal stenosis, sacral defect, presacral mass). Presenting symptoms included passage of feces per vaginam, signs of intestinal subocclusion without perianal inflammation, left leg paresis and foul-smelling urine. An anterior sacral meningocele was repaired at the age of three months. At age 18 months the fistula was excised through a perineal approach after creation of a protective colostomy. Diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of this malformation are discussed.
