BECERRA DEL CARPIO, Ángel Hugo; QUISPICONDOR RAMON, Teodoro  and  H. BARDALES, Ricardo. Carcinoma escamoso de recto y fístula rectovaginal traumática: Relación o coincidencia? Reporte de un caso. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.1, pp.89-92. ISSN 1022-5129.

Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the rectum is rare and its cause and pathogenesis are not clear. Likewise, rectal squamous cell carcinoma in patients with rectovaginal fistula in the absence of gynecologic cancer is extremely rare. We report one of such cases that was diagnosed a year after an untreated traumatic rectovaginal fistula. We also reviewed the literature and discussed the probable association between both processes.

Keywords : rectum; squamous cell carcinoma; trauma; rectovaginal fistula.
