  • Anorectal Malformations / Imperforate Anus in Females

    Anorectal malformations are slightly less common in females than they are males. As with all anorectal malformations, those occurring in females comprise a spectrum of defects ranging from minor to complex. The most common defect in females is rectovestibular fistula. Most high anomalies in girls are cloacas. A high anomaly with a rectovaginal fistula is exceedingly rare.
