Episiotomy dehiscence because of infection is a cause of major physical, psychological and social problems. Management depends on the degree of injury. The loco-regional flap can be considered in recurrent dehiscence with loss of tissue. We report a case of a 26-year-old female who presented with a post episiotomy wound in the perineal region extending from the posterior fourchette to the anal opening. She gave the history of resuturing of dehiscence twice but the result was the same. On examination, there was a loss of skin and subcutaneous tissue between vaginal and anal opening with pouting of the anal and vaginal mucosa. Per rectal examination, the anal tone was normal. Her wound was covered with bilateral inferiorly based labia majora flaps with a good outcome. So, an inferiorly based labia majora flap can be a useful option in coverage of recurrent perineal dehiscence.
