The authors diagnosed rectovaginal fistula with atresia ani in a one-day old female calf. The distance between rectal pouch and perineal skin was 3.2 cm. Using local infiltration anesthesia the fistula was closed with continuous Lembert suture from the incison between the tail and vulva, and the rectum was fixed to the skin with interrupted sutures. Vaginal opening of the fistula was left unsutured. The calf recovered and developed without any complication until the age of 7 months.
