Congenital pouch colon (CPC) is a rare variant of anorectal malformation. It has been classified anatomically into five types as per the length of colon involved. Type 5 is the rarest form of CPC with only six cases reported in the literature till date. It has been originally described as pouch-like (segmental) dilatation of the colon with intervening normal colon of varying length, the distal pouch opening into the genitourinary system with a fistula. We present here a 3-day-old male neonate with CPC Type 5, managed with excision of both pouches and end ileostomy; abdominoperineal posterior sagittal anorectoplasty is planned.
