Abstract

Cloacal exstrophy is one of the complex anomalies, which challenge the pediatric surgeons infrequently. At King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, we had the experience of managing four cases. The reconstruction was achieved in stages and involved gastrointestinal, urological, genital, and musculoskeletal systems. All the managed cases were raised as their original genotype. A fifth case died before any surgical intervention, due to a major cardiac congenital anomaly. The aim of the present study is to report such rare anomalies and to present our experience in their management.
