The corrugated rectum in infantile hirschsprungs's disease

Abstract

Corrugations of the rectum were seen in 11 of 35 patients under the age of 2 years with hirschsprungs's. This finding was just as common as the classic transition zone, and it is a valuable finding in the diagnosis of hirschsprung's disease in infants. While not entirely pathognomonic of the condition, it should be treated with a high degree of suspicion when encountered.
