Rectal prolapse

 

Rectal prolapse refers to a mucosal or full-thickness herniation of rectum through the anal canal.

Most commonly seen in constipated toddlers squatting and straining.

 

Rarely associated with diarrhoea, cystic fibrosis, and coeliac disease.

 

Management

 

Often the prolapse reduces spontaneously after defecation. If not, gentle digital reduction should be performed.

Constipation should be treated.

Recurrent prolapse may be managed with submucous injection of 5% phenol in almond oil.

More complicated surgical procedures are rarely necessary.
