Cloacal deformities encompass a wide range of complicated defects in girls that occur during fetal development of the lower abdominal structures, particularly the intestinal and genito-urinary tracts, raising concerns about urinary control, bowel control and eventual sexual function. There are many variations of these congenital defects.

How does Boston Children’s Hospital treat cloacal deformities?

Cloacal deformities require surgical repair. Children’s physicians and surgeons have extensive experience in repairing a wide range of cloacal deformities. We can help, no matter what condition your child has — and can start planning interventions even before your child is born.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
