Vesicocervical fistula: rare complication secondary to intrauterine device (Lippes loop) erosion.


:We report a case of vesicocervical fistula following intrauterine device (Lippes loop) erosion following insertion 45 years ago. Vesicocervical fistula was suspected clinically. Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the presence of a foreign body. Biopsy and magnetic resonance imaging were performed to rule out malignancies of the urogenital tract. The fistula was managed by laparotomy, hysterectomy, and bladder flap closure. We report this case because of its rarity.
