It is a surgical challenge to repair a cloacal malformation. We are reporting a case of cloacal malformation in which we performed a reconstructive surgery. We performed a reconstructive surgery in a 5 yr old patient who had got a colostomy done in the neonatal period. The surgical management included purely a posterior sagittal anorectovaginourethroplasty without an abdominal approach.

Keywords: Cloaca, Anorectal malformations, Posterior sagittal anorectovaginourethroplasty.
