Abstract  
The occurrence of rectovaginal fistula (RVF) due to injury and infection during surgery has become an increasing trend. Currently the incidence is 0.9–9.9% and the vast majority of cases must be corrected surgically. The authors present a case of a 48-year-old patient who underwent late-onset rectovaginal fistula after laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH). The RVF healed spontaneously with nutritional support and avoidance of infection.
Key words:  Rectovaginal fistula      Spontaneous-healing      Nutritional support      Avoidance of infection
