Rectal carcinoma in a 24-year-old man with Hirschsprung’s disease

This case report presents an incident of rectal carcinoma in a 24-year-old man with Hirschsprung’s disease, for which he was operated in his early childhood, with a Soave pull-through procedure. No direct association between Hirschsprung’s disease and rectal cancer was found in our review of the literature. However, several case reports of rectal cancers following pull-through procedures exist. A low threshold for further clinical investigations is recommended, if these patients are presenting with gastrointestinal symptoms.
