    Abstract

    Posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) is preferred by most pediatric surgeons to correct high and intermediate types of anorectal anomalies (ARA.) in infants. In this report, we describe two girls who presented in their late teens with ARA and were treated by PSARP. Prior to this report, only two adult females with congenital rectovaginal fistulae treated by PSARP have been reported. Megarectum is a feature in late presentation of ARA and requires rectal tapering during PSARP. The functional outcome in late presentation of ARA is discussed.
