Schistosoma haematobium is presented as a cause of vesicovaginal fistula in a nulliparous adolescent. The possible role of S. haematobium in failure of fistula repair and the importance of screening and treatment in endemic areas prior to repair are discussed (Afr J Reprod Health 2009; 13[3]:137-140).
