Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in the new-born baby is a rare though well-acknowledged clinical condition. We present two cases of complete utero-vaginal prolapse in new-born babies. Both infants were otherwise healthy and neurologically normal in their clinical presentation and evaluation. The prolapse was successfully managed with a non-surgical approach. There appears to be two distinct forms of POP in newborns based on the available literature. There are those that occur in newborns with spina bifida (77 % of cases) and those that occur in neurologically intact newborns (23 %). The management of these two types are distinctly different and are discussed in greater detail in this report.
