Dear Enquirer I think you are meaning "HIRSPRUNG DESEASE." I think it will be helpful if I shortly discuss this condition. This is a disorder of the gut which is from birth. Here the nerves are missing in the part of the bowel and as a result in the gut a rhythmic contraction and dilatation a movement called peristalsis
by which contents(food and waste)are propelled along the lumen is absent causing obstruction leading to swelling of the abdomen and bowel.It usually present with difficulties with bowel movement, severe constipation
, infrequenr explosive bowel movement, vomitting , diarrhoea
. Investigation includes serial anal manometry(checking anal pressure) x-ray of the abdomen, Barium enema and rectal biopsy. The treatment is removal abnormal section of the bowel and to put healthy part of the colon to be attached with the anus. Prior to that usually colostomy
(a surgically established communication between colon and surface of the abdomen, a type of stroma that discharges faeces)is done.Kindest regards.
