". . . This book conveys the thoughts and strategies of a highly skilled surgeon. They are clearly presented and enhanced by numerous illustrations. Pediatric surgeons who care for babies and children with anorectal malformations should have this book for ready reference. Chatterjee's experience is such that his advice concerning the recognition and surgical management, especially of uncommon anomalies, should be noted."

 F D Stephens, The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne., Australia



The management of babies born without a normal anus and anorectum has been the subject matter of numerous publications over the last 2 centuries. The malformation occurs more commonly in the Indian subcontinent than in other parts of the world. The author's earlier book published 14 years ago was based on a study of 1250 patients with this malformation. Since then another 858 patients have been studied and the advances made in embryogenesis as well as in diagnosis and management have been recorded. The book is targeted at the young surgeon who has to deliver quality care in situations with limited resources.
