Abstract

We report a case of vesicovaginal fistula associated to a vaginal foreign body. A 72-year-old woman consulted our clinic complaining of severe urinary incontinence. The leakage was continuous and significant and she was feeling a "vaginal mass". Pelvic examination was suspicious for an advanced vaginal cancer, but further investigations showed the presence of a retained vaginal foreign body complicated by perforation of the bladder.
