Early Detection and Intervention for Hirschsprung's Disease: A Key to Successful Outcomes.

Hirschsprung's disease is a congenital disorder characterized by the absence of nerve cells in the colon muscles, leading to difficulties in evacuating stool. This case report describes a newborn patient presenting with typical symptoms of the disease, including abdominal distension, constipation, diarrhea, and fever. The patient's initial laboratory investigations revealed anemia (Hb: 9.80 g/dL), low RBC count (3.50 million/cu mm), elevated RDW (16.70%), increased WBC count (11 000/cu mm), and raised platelet levels (891 000/µL) along with an elevated CRP (3.22). The baby received a comprehensive treatment regimen, including blood transfusion, Syp. MVBC, Enterogermina, Inj. Pan, Inj. Metro, Inj. Piptaz, Inj. Vancomycin, Calcium gluconate, and Inj. Aminoven. Following this treatment and necessary surgical intervention, the patient demonstrated significant improvement in frequent bowel movements and alleviation of other symptoms. This case highlights the importance of prompt diagnosis and multidisciplinary management for favorable outcomes in infants with Hirschsprung's disease.
