Imperforate Anus

Imperforate anus is a birth abnormality caused by improper development of the fetal rectum and anus during pregnancy. The opening at the end of the rectum or anus is absent, so stool cannot leave the body normally. Fetal imperforate anus can sometimes be diagnosed before birth by ultrasound.
