ANTONIOLI, M.L. et al. Anal Atresia with rectovaginal fistula in sheep: case report. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.5, pp.1167-1171. ISSN 1678-4162.

Atresia ani associated with rectovaginal fistula is considered a rare congenital anomaly in sheep. Therefore, the surgical correction and post-operative care of a lamb presenting atresia ani with rectovaginal fistula has been detailed in this case report. A 25-days old, mixed breed lamb, weighing 7.2 kg, showing signs of abdominal bloating, and stool passage through the vulva was admitted at our hospital. An atresia ani type III condition associated with rectovaginal fistula was diagnosed by clinical examination and confirmed by radiographic examination.

Keywords : lamb; congenital malformation; atresia ani; post-operative care; surgical repair.
