Imperforate anus

Very rarely a baby’s anus is sealed at birth, either because there is a thin membrane of skin over the opening or because the anus canal which links the rectum with the anus, hasn’t developed. This baby must be referred for surgical treatment at once.

This treatment is checked for at every birth, and is treated immediately if present.
