  Background: Imperforate anus is a common anomaly associated with many other anomalies. The aim of this study is determining the frequency of associated anomalies in children with imperforated anus.

  Methods: This retrospective, cross sectional study was conducted by 245 neonates and children (137 male, 105 female and 3 ambiguous genitalia) with imperforated anus diagnosis, in Ali-Asghar hospital 1999 – 2008. Our information was extracted from patient’s files and charts. SPSS 17 used for data analysis.

  Results: 50.6% of the patients had associated anomalies which included 18% cardiovascular, 15.5% renal, 14.7% gastrointestinal, 13.9% vertebral, 13.1% genitourinary, 8.2% external genitalia. The most prevalent associated anomaly in this study was genitourinary system anomalies and also cardiovascular anomalies in the second rank.

  Conclusion: Patients with imperforated anus should undergo a detailed general physical, systemic and radiological examination (Infant gram, Echo cardiography, Ultrasonography of urogenital system) in neonatal period to detect associated anomalies in early period.
