The anorectal anomaly is not rarely seen in the neonatal period. But, If it is not accompanied with a fairly large fistula, it presents an urgent problem, so should be managed with perianal anoplasty or colostomy. Neonatal peritonitis is very grave and is caused by various conditions listed in Table 1. In Korea, no case of neonatal peritonitis caused by anorectal has yet been reported in the literature. With brief review of the literature, we present a case of neonatal peritonitis which appeared 36 hours after birth by perforation of the colon due to anorectal stenosis.
Key Words: Anorectal stenosis, Transverse colon rupture, neonatal peritonitis
