1 Answer:

Hello Dewi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The condition in which a baby is born without an anal canal is called atresia ani or imperforate anus. Normally, the digestive tract (including the anus), urinary tract, and reproductive tract of the fetus will form at 7-8 weeks of gestation. Imperforate anus can occur due to interference in the process of formation of these channels.


Imperforate anus is estimated to occur in 1 in 5000 babies born. Imperforate anus is a birth defect that can occur to anyone (random) without a clear cause. Until now, there has not been any disruption in the specific genes that cause this birth defect, and it is not known whether there are certain risk factors in the parents or pregnancy that cause imperforate anus to occur. In some cases (rarely), imperforate anus can also occur due to heredity (familial).


Here is an article that you can read about imperforate anus or atresia ani

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
