Colovesical fistula is a most common type of enterovesical fistulae, and is most often caused by an inflammatory process, with diverticulitis being the most common cause. We present here the cases of two patients who presented with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and pneumaturia, as well as a third case who presented with recurrent attacks of lower abdominal pain. Diagnosis was confirmed through computed tomography (CT) imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or cystoscopy. Surgical management is detailed and discussed, including single-staged & two-staged repairs.
