BACKGROUND: Patients with cloacal malformations at birth usually require multiple surgical procedures to correct their anatomic defects. In addition, many also have associated Müllerian anomalies. Those who conceive after repairs invariably are considered "high-risk" pregnancies and are considered poor candidates for maintaining multiple gestations. Further, because of the nature of their defects and their repairs, following such patients with multiple gestation presents unique challenges. CASE: A 29-year-old multipara conceived triplets and delivered at 30 weeks with a good maternal and neonatal outcome. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with repaired cloacal abnormalities present unique challenges and risks compared to the general population with regard to the risks of multiple pregnancies.
