The treatment and management of localized rectal cancer has evolved exponentially in recent years. Thanks to improvements in neoadjuvant treatments and the possibility of close follow-up programs with organ preservation (watch and wait) in patients who acquire clinical complete response their quality of life has improved substantially. We present a clinical case of rectal cancer in neoadjuvant treatment complicated with tumor perianal fistula, its management and impact on its follow-up.
