Abstract

Foreign bodies related to urogenital tract represent a relatively rare pathology and are most commonly found in the urinary bladder.
Foreign body of the urinary bladder may occur by migration from surrounding organs or by self-insertion via urethra. Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) is commonly caused by obstructed labor, gynecological surgeries, occasionally due to malignancy, but rarely by the foreign body; in most cases being ring pessaries. A 25-year-old female presented in our clinic with urinary incontinence and irritative lower urinary tract symptoms. Radiological investigation revealed intravesical foreign body (wooden abortion stick) with VVF. It was removed via suprapubic cystostomy and fistula managed conservatively.
