Abstract

A 40-year-old G3P3 woman with grade 3 cervical intraepithelial neoplasia underwent loop electrosurgical excision procedure complicated by a large vesicovaginal fistula. She was initially managed with an indwelling Foley catheter to allow for fistula maturation. During planned surgical repair it was discovered that the fistula had closed spontaneously.
