Ureter fistulas are rare complications of obstetrics and gynecologic surgery. We report two cases of ureter fistulas; the first case is a 28-year-old with an ureterouterine fistula who underwent caesarean section four years ago. The second case is a 54-year-old with an ureterovaginal fistula and a history of an abdominal total hysterectomy 16 months ago. Both patients complained of urine leaks from the vagina. The extravesical ureteroneocystotomy using Lich-Gregoir technique was done on both cases successfully with uneventful post-operative course.
