The term '''renocutaneous''' pertains to the [[kidney]]s and the [[skin]]. It is a descriptive word to relate to these two organs. It is often used to describe a fistula, particularly ''renocutaneous fistula''. A [[fistula]] is a permanent abnormal connection between two epithelialized organs. In the case of renocutaneous fistula, it is a fistula between the kidney and the exterior of the body. This abnormal passageway between the kidney and the skin is a rare complication of renal surgery, trauma, tumors, or chronic urinary tract infection with abscess. Variant: reno-cutaneous.
