Abstract

A uterocutaneous fistula is a rare clinical presentation that occurs following cesarean section or any other pelvic surgery. We describe a case of uterocutaneous fistula with successful surgical management. A 25-year woman was referred to our hospital with complaints of cyclical bleeding from lower segment cesarean section scar (LSCS scar). It was diagnosed as uterocutaneous fistula on ultrasonography and computed tomography. The fistula tract was excised. Histopathology report was suggestive of sinus tract due to tuberculous etiology. Patient was started on antituberculous treatment. Recovery was uneventful.
