Abstract

Anorectal malformation (ARM) is a generic term referring to a group of congenital anomalies of the anus and the rectum, ranging from simple “anal stenosis” to complex “cloacal persistence syndrome”. It includes a wide spectrum of presentations, of which anorectal agenesis is the most frequent. ARMs are challenging both from diagnostic and surgical points of view. Even prompt and appropriate treatment is likely to result in lifelong disability due, for example, to incontinence and constipation.
