Abstract

Genital prolapse in the newborn is a rare clinical condition often times seen in association with congenital myelo‑meningocele, or this could occur following shigellosis infection. We therefore report two neonates with rectal prolapse following diarrhea and utero‑vaginal prolapse associated with congenital spinal bifida.

Key words: Congenital myelomeningocele, genital, prolapse, rectal, Shigella
