Forty four cases (36 lambs and 8 kids) of atresia ani brought to the clinic over a period of four years were studied by physical examination and radiography. All these cases were surgically corrected. The current study evaluates the significant clinical findings, surgical treatment, and long-term outcomes of lambs and kids that underwent surgery for atresia ani (AA) with or without concomitant anorectal or anogenital malformations.
