Persistent cloaca is a rare urogenital anomaly that can pose significant challenges for adequate diagnosis and management. We describe the case of an infant girl with a cloacal malformation, having a single perineal orifice and an accessory phallic urethra, who presented with ambiguous genitalia at birth. The distal part of the accessory phallic urethra was used to create a mucosa-lined vestibule as a part of the total urogenital sinus mobilization. This technical maneuver allowed a more natural looking, and possibly functioning, vaginal introitus, improving the final cosmetic result.
