Cloacal anaomaly

During the 32 week routine ultra sound , doctore told us that the baby may have cloacal anomaly. However no such finding were noticed for the previous ultrasounds. We want to get prepared for the baby. Anyone who knows this please reply.

As a suggestion I urge everyone to get the featus checked by a palenthologist rather than a technician in dcotor's office

Re: Cloacal anaomaly

Hi -

Just an educated guess, but it sounds like the term means the baby may have an unusual rectum or anus. Some babies are born with no rectal opening and that's called an "imperforate anus". That calls for a surgical repair soon after birth.

Ask you doctor to explain what the ultrasound showed, what it might mean, and if there's another test (or repeat of that type US) that will clear up the confusion. Also, shame on the doctor for failing to make sure you understood all about it right away. That is part of the doctor's job.

Wishing you well - Barbara
