Vesicouterine fistula (VUF) with cyclical hematuria, amenorrhea, and urinary continence is a rare condition referred to as Youssef's syndrome. It is most commonly observed after caesarean section (C/S) due to iatrogenic reasons. Open surgical management (transabdominal) has good results as it involves excision of the tract. We report a case of a VUF which developed after a repeat C/S and was successfully repaired with interposed vesico-peritoneal fold. Strict adherence to obstetric and surgical principles during Caesarean section can prevent formation of these fistulae.
