Congenital H-type rectovestibular fistula with normal anus is a rare form of anorectal malformations. In the diagnosis of a female patient with H-type fistula, history may have an important role, creating a high degree of suspicion and calling for direct careful examination of the vestibule. There is also no consensus on the optimal treatment of this rare anomaly. Here, we present the diagnosis, clinical and anatomical features, and treatment results in the cases of two girls who had an H-type fistula with normal anus.
