Abstract

The number of ileostomies created for benign diseases such as familial adenomatous polyposis and ulcerative colitis is increasing. Long-term ileostomies are prone to develop various complications over time. Ileostomy site carcinoma is a well-established complication in ulcerative colitis and familial adenomatous polyposis that have undergone total colectomy. However, no case of ileostomy site carcinoma has been described in a patient with Hirschprung’s disease. We present the first case of adenocarcinoma at an ileostomy site in a patient with Hirschprung’s disease with retroviral disease.

Keywords

ileostomy, adenocarcinoma, Hirschprung’s disease, retroviral.
