An ischiorectal abscess in a 66-year-old patient was determined to be an uncommon complication of sacrospinous fixation. The abscess was diagnosed 9 months after the patient had a sacrospinous ligament suspension. She was treated successfully with perianal incision, drainage, and intravenous antibiotics.
