© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Acquired urethrovaginal fistulae and urethral atresia are rare findings in pediatric patients, but have been described in adult patients related to trauma or iatrogenic injury. Little exists in the published literature to guide management of such conditions in children, but lessons learned from congenital causes can help. Herein we discuss the preoperative evaluation and management of a child with an acquired urethrovaginal fistula and urethral atresia likely related to in utero compression from an intrapelvic sacrococcygeal teratoma and provide several images detailing the complex anatomy.
