Background: Vesicocutaneous fistula is a rare type of urinary fistula. It is often distressing and may negatively impact on the quality of life of an affected person. Our aim in this case report is to document a case of vesicocutaneous fistula following pelvic trauma from road traffic accident and share our experience in the management of this condition. Case Report: We report the case of a 30 year-old primipara who had urinary incontinence following pelvic trauma sustained from road traffic accident. Examination findings were in keeping with vesicocutaneous fistula. She subsequently had surgical repair of vesicocutaneous fistula which was successful. Conclusion: This case report highlights pelvic trauma as one of the causes of urinary fistula and the key role of surgery in its management.
