OBJECTIVE: We report one case of a spontaneous resolution of a uretero-vaginal fistula, and we review the current diagnostic and therapeutic features of this condition in the literature. METHODS: We present the case of a 41-year-old woman who, during the late postoperative period of a radical hysterectomy, presented episodes of daily and nocturnal incontinence with episodic flank pain compatible with uretero-vaginal fistula. RESULTS: One month after diagnosis the patient does not report incontinence during day or night, and the lumbar pain has disappeared. An intravenous urography shows that there has been a spontaneous resolution of the uretero-vaginal fistula. CONCLUSIONS: Spontaneous resolution of a uretero-vaginal fistula is rare. Most fistulas require endourological or surgical treatment.
