Summary of "Congenital prepubic urachal-cutaneous fistula."

Congenital prepubic fistula is a very rare congenital anomaly that manifests as a punctiform opening in the midline of the pubic region. According to Campbell, congenital prepubic fistulae are duplicates of the dorsal urethra. Recent investigations have shown that this problem may have a complex etiology. We report a case of a congenital prepubic fistula in 2-month old female neonate, which manifested as a simple punctiform opening in the pubic region, with purulent secretion that resulted from applying pressure to the region. The surgical treatment was successful, and the infant had an uneventful postoperative course of healing.

A fistula between a salivary duct or gland and the cutaneous surface of the oral cavity.

An abnormal anatomical passage between the INTESTINE, and another segment of the intestine or other organs. External intestinal fistula is connected to the SKIN (enterocutaneous fistula). Internal intestinal fistula can be connected to a number of organs, such as STOMACH (gastrocolic fistula), the BILIARY TRACT (cholecystoduodenal fistula), or the URINARY BLADDER of the URINARY TRACT (colovesical fistula). Risk factors include inflammatory processes, cancer, radiation treatment, and surgical misadventures (MEDICAL ERRORS).
