Abstract

Anorectal malformations are one of the common congenital anomalies encountered in the newborn period. The plethora of anomalies described makes it a complex subject for embryological explanations. Fistulous communications between the blind rectum and the urinary tract are common in boys with high/intermediate anomalies, but it is uncommon in children with low anorectal malformations, more so a double fistula. We are reporting a case of 'ano-uerthro-cutaneous fistula' associated with a low ano rectal malformation.
