Pediatric Cloacal Anomaly

What is a Cloacal Anomaly?

During the normal growth process, the baby's urinary tract, rectum, and vagina all separate to form their own openings. A cloacal anomaly occurs when these three openings fail to form, resulting in just one opening when the child is born. 

How is Pediatric Cloacal Anomaly diagnosed?

Cloacal anomalies are typically diagnosed right after birth, as the baby girl requires immediate treatment to help pass urine and stool. Cloacal anomalies can sometimes be spotted on prenatal ultrasounds.
