Abstract

Adult presentation of anorectal malformations (ARM) is rare. Most of these anomalies are diagnosed and corrected at birth or shortly thereafter. We will present two cases of anovestibular fistula presenting in adulthood. One case is a woman with a history of passing stools through the vagina after marriage and the other case is a woman with a history of chronic constipation since childhood. Case 1 was treated with limited anterior sagittal anorectoplasty, and case 2 was treated with limited posterior sagittal anorectoplasty. Total correction was achieved both anatomically and physiologically after surgery. The reporting of this information should increase the awareness of this disease among surgeons treating adults.
