Zoloft Birth Defects: Anal Atresia

Posted on May 4th, 2011 No Comments

The prescription drug Zoloft has been linked to a number of birth defects, including anal atresia.

Anal atresia or imperforate anus is a birth defect in which the rectum is malformed. In some cases, the colon may remain close to the skin and there may be a stenosis or narrowing of the anus, or the anus may be missing altogether, with the rectum ending in a blind pouch. Anal atresia is usually present along with other birth defects, such as spinal problems and limb anomalies.

When an infant is born with anal atresia, it is important to determine the presence of any associated defects in order to treat them early. Some newborns with anal atresia may require a protective colostomy. The decision to open a colostomy is usually made within the first 24 hours of birth. A doctor may also decide to perform a perineal anoplasty.

If your child suffered a birth defect after you were prescribed Zoloft while pregnant, please contact the Zoloft Birth Defect Attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-641-9810.
