Abstract

Persistent cloaca is a severe form of malformation of the anorectum. A distal colostogram is important in the planning of its treatment. We report herein a case of a girl who had barium stone formation within her vagina following a distal colostogram. Water soluble contrasts are recommended for this procedure.

Key words: Barium stones, distal colostogram, persistent cloaca, water soluble contrast
