Abstract

We present a case of a newborn female with imperforate anus who on exam was found to have a rectal fistula in the vestibule, no vaginal opening, and a normal urethra. A diagnostic laparoscopy was performed to elucidate the internal anatomy. The case is presented with a focus on surgical strategies in approaching the female patient with anorectal malformation and a Mullerian anomaly, with questions for the readers posed in a quiz format.
