Abstract
Ectopic anus is an atypical uncommon variant of broad spectrum of anorectal malformation. We present a case of a 22 day old neonate with anus placed within scrotum. After surgical intervention a neoanus was created within sphincter complex and good functional result was achieved. Patient had urethral injury intraoperatively which was managed by urethrostomy. Subcoronal hypospadias and urethrostomy was corrected in second setting.
