She was referred to department of radio diagnosis . Ultrasonography and MRI were performed. Ultrasonography revealed a fistulous communication between endometrial cavity and urinary bladder at the level of lower uterine segment. MRI confirmed the findings. Laboratory investigations revealed decreased Hb level (10 mg/ml) but rest of the blood investigations are within normal limit. Urine examination shows few pus cells.
