    Abstract

    Rectovaginal fistula (RVF) is an uncommon condition. Implantation of transvaginal mesh between the vagina and rectum is a recognized cause, albeit rare. We report a case of RVF which was initially suspected to be a complication of mesh surgery; however, after careful evaluation and review of the literature, a drug‐induced RVF was diagnosed.
