The following cases of congenital malformation
of the rectum and anus which I have chosen as a subject
for my Thesis have been treated' at the Liverpool Childrens' Infirmary during the last four years.
I propose first to refer briefly to the classification of the cases and to give some statistics as to the
frequency of the condition.
I will then give the notes on the various cases,
and will afterwards enter at some detail into the treatment.
Finally in commenting on the Post Mortem Examiinations I shall give a brief sketch of the development
of the parts involved.
