Anorectal malformations (ARMs) occur in approximately 1 of every 5000 newborns and management still differs widely among practitioners. In this review, we adress some of the current accepted concepts in management. Missmanagement can have devastating consequences such as faecal incontinence, urinary incontinence and sexual disfunction. We briefly review common pecularities of the most common cases the and initial management oft he newborn. In this article I intend to present a brief overview without going into details but hopefully will motivate interest and further reading. Further the recommendation is made that case referal to a centre with a high volume load provides the highest benefits fort he patient in the form of better prognosis and long term management.
