Pottabathula Mallesh and Kontham Sampath
Atresia ani is a failure of development of the anal opening. It is a congenital abnormality, manifested clinically by an absence of faeces, dullness, anorexia with abdominal distension, discomfort and straining at an attempt to defecate. Rectal lumen usually bulges subcutaneously at normal site of the anus when the abdomen is compressed. Surgical treatment is the only course of action. This paper reports a case of lamb with atresia ani and also gives the surgical procedure adopted.
