A RARE CASE OF ANAL CANAL DUPLICATION IN PEDIATRICS
Ahmed Salama*, Mohammad Daboos and Mostafa Elbahrawy
Anal canal duplication (ACD) is a very rare congenital malformation presenting with a perineal orifice situated behind the anus. Few cases have been reported. The majority of patients are female. Surgical excision is recommended, to avoid complications such as abscess, fistula formation, or malignancy. We report a case of a patient with ACD discovered incidentally at 1 year of age. The patient was treated with surgical excision, restoring the normal anatomy.
Keywords: Anal canal duplication.
