Few adult cases suffering from anorectal malformation have been concerned in literature; therefore, little is known about the best approach for managing this matter in adults. Our case is a 24 years old female patient admitted to our center with recurrent urinary tract infections and fecal incontinence. She was in hemodialysis program for 1 year due to chronic renal failure. During clinical examination, rectovestibular fistula was detected. Initially, sigmoid loop colostomy was formed. After 10 days, posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) was applied and after 3 months, closure of the colostomy was practiced. Total continence reconstruction was achieved. 8 months after all these processes, kidney transplant from our patient’s mother was performed and the patient was back to her normal life. After 18 months, Arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis was closed. By means of PSARP, satisfactory results were reached in adults with delayed anorectal malformation.
