Los bebes con problemas para vaciar los intestinos a veces tienen un problema denominado enfermedad de Hirschsprung. El tratamiento para esta. Hirschsprung disease (HSCR), or congenital intestinal aganglionosis, is a birth defect characterized by complete absence of neuronal ganglion. In Hirschsprung disease, there are no ganglion cells in the wall of the affected intestine. % of children with Hirschsprung disease have the rectum and.

Conditions associated with abnormalities of the enteric nervous system or musculature, termed chronic intestinal pseudoobstruction including intestinal neuronal dysplasia [IND] [ Kapur ]. It is commonly characterised by a short segment of colonic aganglionosis affecting term neonates, especially boys. Most pathogenic variants are associated with nonsyndromic forms of HSCR; however, because a few individuals hirscsprung reported to have other anomalies this form of HSCR may also be syndromic.

The diagnosis of HD in adults is much harder than in children, due to their rarity as they are often short or ultrashort aganglionic segments, which produce mild symptoms in early stages of the disease. A carefully performed contrast enema is indispensable in both the diagnosis of Hirschsprung disease but also in assessing the length of involvement. Edit article Share article View revision history.
