OBJECTIVE: To report a case of ureterovaginal fistula secondary to transvaginal oocyte retrieval (TVOR). DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: IVF Center IN a private hospital. PATIENT(S): A 31-year-old woman presented immediately after TVOR with right lower abdominal pain with irradiation to the suprapubic area and vaginal discharge. INTERVENTION(S): Vaginal examination, creatinine dosage in plasma and vaginal discharge, excretory urography. A double-J catheter was inserted under general anesthesia. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Clinical follow-up. RESULT(S): Vaginal leakage ceased a few hours after catheter insertion. Transfer of two embryos was performed 3 days after TVOR, but no pregnancy occurred. The double-J catheter was removed 21 days after its placement. Imaging studies done 6 weeks later demonstrated a normal urinary tract morphology. CONCLUSION(S): Given the elective nature of TVOR and IVF, patients should be informed about all potential complications, including ureterovaginal fistula.
