Hirschsprung Disease : Barium enema

slide 3 of 8

Comments:
Post evacuation barium enema film demonstrates the transition point between sigmoid and descending colon more obviously. The denervated segment (rectum and distal sigmoid colon in this case) appears narrowed as a result of spasm. The appearance is typical of short segment Hirschsprung disease. Case produced with permission, courtesy of Dr. Frank Gaillard. Radiopaedia. Complete case is here.
