Lymphatic vaginal fistula after Wertheim-Taussig hysterectomy: a case report.

Author information

  • 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Prince of Wales Hospital, N.T.


Significant vaginal discharge of clear fluid after Wertheim-Taussig hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is most often due to urinary fistula. Rarely, the same symptom may be caused by lymphatic fistula, which has not been reported previously. The differentiation between lymph and urine is simple. If this rare complication is not suspected, patients may undergo unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures of the urinary tract.
