Abstract

 

Congenital prepubic fistula is a very rare congenital anomaly that manifests as a punctiform opening in the midline of the pubic region. According to Campbell, congenital prepubic fistulae are duplicates of the dorsal urethra. Recent investigations have shown that this problem may have a complex etiology. We report a case of a congenital prepubic fistula in 2-month old female neonate, which manifested as a simple punctiform opening in the pubic region, with purulent secretion that resulted from applying pressure to the region. The surgical treatment was successful, and the infant had an uneventful postoperative course of healing.
