Abstract

Postoperative enterocutaneous fistula can occur after any gastrointestinal surgery. It is however uncommon following gynaecologic procedures. Although adjacent organ fistulae such as the rectovaginal and vesico-vaginal fistulae could be seen after hysterectomy, enterocutaneous fistulae are rarely encountered. We report a case of enterocutaneous fistula on twenty second post-operative day following total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salphingo-oopherectomywith partial omentectomy. The patient was managed conservatively which resulted in spontaneous closure of the fistula.
