In children with Hirschsprung's disease, nerves fail to form in all or part of the large intestine colon. Waste from digestion cannot pass through the part of the colon lacking nerve tissue. The normal colon swells with blocked stool. Hirschsprung's HIRSH-sproongz disease is a condition that affects the large intestine colon and causes problems with passing stool. The condition is present at birth congenital as a result of missing nerve cells in the muscles of the baby's colon.

A newborn who has Hirschsprung's disease usually can't have a bowel movement in the days after birth. In mild cases, the condition might not be detected until later in childhood. Uncommonly, Hirschsprung's disease is first diagnosed in adults. Signs and symptoms of Hirschsprung's disease vary with the severity of the condition.

Usually signs and symptoms appear shortly after birth, but sometimes they're not apparent until later in life. Typically, the most obvious sign is a newborn's failure to have a bowel movement within 48 hours after birth.

It's not clear what causes Hirschsprung's disease. It sometimes occurs in families and might, in some cases, be associated with a genetic mutation.

Hirschsprung's disease occurs when nerve cells in the colon don't form completely. Nerves in the colon control the muscle contractions that move food through the bowels.

Without the contractions, stool stays in the large intestine. Children who have Hirschsprung's disease are prone to a serious intestinal infection called enterocolitis. Enterocolitis can be life-threatening and requires immediate treatment. Mayo Clinic does not endorse companies or products. Advertising revenue supports our not-for-profit mission.

With diagnostic methods already established in the literature, the sole treatment is surgery. The objective of this study is to report a case of late diagnosis of the disease at age 13, with symptoms of fecal incontinence in its evolution. Hirschsprung's Disease HD , also known as congenital aganglionic megacolon, is an anomaly characterized by an absence of ganglion cells in the myenteric and submucosal plexuses in a variable bowel segment. The absence of ganglion cells results in permanent contraction of the affected segment, preventing the passage of fecal content through that region.
