Congenital short colon associated with imperforate anus (Zachary-Morgan syndrome).


Two cases of short colon with imperforate anus are presented. Terminal colostomy is the therapy of choice in the neonatal period. As the definitive final procedure, trimming into a tubular structure and abdomino-perineal pull-through operation is suggested. A survey is given of similar cases reported in the literature.
