Despite the MTP act, which legalized abortions in India way back 1971, the number of illegal abortion is still very high and accounts for large numbers of maternal deaths. It is estimated that 50-60 million induced abortions take place annually in the world and 19 million are still performed illegally. VVF following D and E is rarest of the rare cases. In one reported case of MTP, some paste was applied inside the vagina, following which she aborted spontaneously and noticed watery discharge per vagina. In the present case, the 30 years old house wife, reported continuous leakage of urine following dilatation and evacuation by a quack to terminate her pregnancy. She reported to our hospital four and half years after the incident. On examination she was diagnosed as a case of VVF. It was repaired through abdominal route. She did well post-operatably and was discharged on 15th post operative day.
