Abstract

Burns to the buttocks are rare. Gluteal pouching, a complication of burn scar contractures of the buttocks, with total effacement of the gluteal folds and hooding of the rectum is described. A barium enema is helpful for preoperative evaluation. Recreation of the gluteal folds and unhooding of the rectum can be performed effectively without skin grafting.
