The appearance of a recto-perineal fistula post-operatively in an intermediate type of anorectal malformation is rare. It always gives rise to incontinence. However, the closure of this fistula is particularly difficult since recurrence is frequent. The following case report concerns a patient who after several unsuccessful attempts to close the fistula, had a local rotation flap which permitted good healing and a beneficial effect on continence thanks to a good reconstruction of the perineal body.
