A 26 year-old female patient was admitted for the first time in the surgical, presenting an abnormal connection between the rectum and vagina given a context of an apparently clear period of time following a natural childbirth 1 year and 10 months ago. This is a rare pathological condition with a major physical, mental and sexual impact for a young female. Various surgical treatment solutions are described in the specialized literature. Yet, we have not come across any studies that analyzed the various means of surgical treatment. In what follows we will describe the technique we used in this case, with a very good immediate result and after 5 years by surgery.
