Pediatric Cloacal Malformations

A cloacal malformation is a type of anorectal malformation that occurs when the rectum, vagina and urinary tract form a single channel rather than three separate openings in newborn girls. The severity of the condition depends on where the three tracts have joined together. One of the most complicated and severe cloacal deformities is called a cloacal exstrophy. This occurs when a baby is born with several organs that are exposed, such as the bladder, large intestine or when certain organs protrude from the navel (called an omphalocele).

Many newborn girls with cloacal malformations experience other complications including defects of the urinary and gynecologic organs.
