Background: :The most rectovaginal fistulas (RVF) are acquired. Although a Bartholinís gland abscess isnít unusual in women in reproductive age, RVF is a rare complication.
Case: :We present a patient with a low RVF. She had a previous history of four episodes of Bartholinís gland abscess. She was undergone LIFT surgery. Two weeks later she had a new Bartholinís gland abscess and three weeks after was diagnosed another RVF secondary to Bartholinís gland abscess. Surgical approached with LIFT surgery was performed and complemented with Martius graft.
Conclusion: :We reported rare case of rectovaginal fistula secondary a Bartholinís gland abscess and treated with Martius graft. With this case the authors highlight the im-portance of multidisciplinary approach and the relevance of interpositional graft techniques.
