Abstract

Rectal carcinoma is rare in young patients under twenty years of age, consisting of only 1% of colorectal carcinomas at all ages [1,2]. Abdominoperineal resection is known to cause sexual dysfunction and reduced quality of life. We report a case of successful pregnancy and more than ten years of disease free survival following abdominoperineal resection for rectal carcinoma in a teenage female.
