The article presents the summary of literature data on the persistent cloaca, results of diagnostics and treatment of 16 girls with the mentioned pathology at our clinic. The PC is a multivariant fusion of anatomical structures forming the common canal or urogenital sinus. This explains occurrence of different complications requiring surgeries. The number of concurrent abnormalities with pronounced anatomical and functional disturbances is increased alongside with the length of the common canal. In 4 observations surgeries were performed without colostomy and in 12 cases these were done applying colostomy. Posterior and sagittal anorecto-ureterovaginoplasty procedure was the method of choice for surgical correction. The abdominoperineal approach was used in 3 observations as an addition.
