The authors report a case of acquired urethro-rectal fistula which was treated by an anterior perineal, transano-rectal approach. They review all of the techniques of approaching these urethro-rectal fistulae which have the reputation for being difficult to treat. This case, like others, demonstrates the harmlessness of section of the anal sphincter, provided it is repaired correctly. The authors propose extending the indications for this approach to include prostato-rectal fistulae.
