Abstract

Fecal incontinence, the loss of feces in the underwear after age 4 years, is a frustrating phenomenon for children and their parents. It is difficult to treat, presenting as a single symptom without any organic cause or signs of constipation. This review addresses the definition of functional nonretentive fecal incontinence and provides an overview of its epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, diagnostic work-up and prognosis. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
