Abstract

Spontaneous Resolution of an Iatrogenic Ureterovaginal Fistula after Clinical Treatment of Hypothyroidism: A Case Study with a Review of the Literature

Association of hypothyroidism and disturbances of healing process is well known, but its exact effect on tissue integrity and mechanisms of dehiscence remain unclear. The relationship between hypothyroidism and iatrogenic ureterovaginal fistula is scarcely reported in the literature. We report the case of a 46-yearold woman who underwent cytoreductive surgery for ovarian cancer and developed an ureterovaginal fistula that was conservatively and successfully managed with thyroid hormone replacement after being diagnosed with myxedema.

Keywords: Hypothyroidism; Ureterovaginal fistula; Spontaneous resolution; Ovarian cancer
