Abstract

We report a case of vesicocutaneous fistula to the thigh that developed 7 years after an injury to the pelvis. A 34-year-old male patient was referred to our hospital because of a water-soluble yellow exudate from his left thigh. A urinary fistula was suggested by the results of an intravenous indigo carmine injection. Intravenous pyelography and computed tomography revealed the presence of a bladder deformation and a fistula originating at the ventral bladder wall and leading down to the left thigh. The patient underwent fistulectomy and partial cystectomy. To the best of our knowledge, no previous reports of vesicocutaneous fistula to the thigh have been published.
