Abstract

Vaginal agenesis with anorectal malformations is a complex pediatric condition that adversely affects various physiological processes in the body. It may cause disturbances in defecation and urination, abnormalities in the urinary and gastrointestinal tract, dysfunction of the genital and reproductive organs, and sexual function disorders. The complexity in the surgical management of vaginal agenesis includes the selection of a functional reconstruction technique for anal and vaginal formation, timing of the reconstruction, and management of complications in the associated organ system. Herein, we describe a patient with Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome accompanied by a rectovesical fistula. Other abnormalities, such as microcephaly, polydactyly, long urethral abnormalities resembling the male urethra, and complications in the kidney and urinary tract, were observed in the patient. The associated complications included recurrent urinary tract infections, urinary overflow incontinence, vesicoureteric reflux, hydroureter, and left renal hydronephrosis. The patient underwent posterior sagittal anorectoplasty surgery and vaginal reconstruction. The long-term vaginal physiological development of patients with this condition remains unknown.
