Currarino Triad syndrome was described in 1981. It includes presacral mass, anorectal malformation and sacral bone deformity. A female patient with sacrococcygeal mass was admitted to our clinic. The mass was defined as a teratoma, with a rectovestibular fistula and sacral bone deformity accompanying. We described complet Currarino Triad syndrom after investigation. On second day, total mass excision and anorectoplasty were planned. After the mass excision an anesthesia problem occured and the plasty was postponed. One year later following anal stimulation a posterosagittal anorectoplasty was performed. The patient is still on clinical follow up. When one component of the Currarino Triad exists, other components should be investigated.
