Abstract

Vaginal evisceration of bowel is an rare complication1,2. Approximately 80 cases have been documented in world literature1. Bowel evisceration is more commonly seen in postmenopausal women1,2 and is well documented complication of operations for gynecological malignancies, and pelvic exenteration2. There are very few reports of this complication occurring following anterior exenteration for carcinoma bladder in female3,4. We hereby report a case of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder who presented with bowel prolapse through the pelvic floor, a month after anterior exenteration and ileal conduit urinary diversion. The case is being reported to impress upon the need for a thorough pelvic floor repair in cases of pelvic exenteration.
