This Tiny Baby Has Cloaca
She was born with a female congenital malformation called cloaca.
Cloaca is a rare anatomical disorder in which the tissuethat forms the baby’s vagina, anus, and urinary tract is not separated completely to form three separate openings.The cloaca in normally developing babies should separate into three channels. But tiny baby development was played with in unkind ways, causing us great heartache and distress.

Initial emergency surgery at birth
in a local hospital involved diverting the faecal stream with formation of a colostomy.
Extremely Rare Condition
This malformation is very rare - it affects only 1 in 50,000 newborns! Unfortunately, our baby is one of those super-rare cases.
The 22-month old baby girl is already struggling with issues that are affecting her normal urine and waste release functions. When the three openings come together into one channel, urinary infections are common, but they can be the least of the problem!
If she doesn’t get surgery as soon as possible, she will have troubles not only with the digestive and urinary systems, but also with her sexual life and pregnancy.
The cloaca prevents normal reproductive health!
Specific Diagnosis - Urgent Intervention Required
This case is specific. What distinguishes her from the rest of the similar diagnosis is that her cloaca malformation includes a long common channel of more than 3 cm., two vaginas and two crevices.
As you can see, nature hasn’t been kind to precious baby. It has dealt her a poor hand.
But there is a silver lining and we are here to ask you to help us fill in this bucket of hope!
With the help of noble human souls and the right surgical hands, she will be able to grow up and lead a normal and healthy life. We know that this Tiny Baby is a winner!.
If baby could speak, she would be asking for your kind help! For now, she speaks to you through us - the voice of her parents!
Complex Surgery - Possibly More than One!
As you can imagine, in such a complex condition, there are dozens of things that could go wrong!
Therefore, it’s critical to get baby into the capable hands of a highly skilled surgical team.
The surgical procedure to repair Cloaca is called a Posterior Sagittal AnoRectoVaginoUrethroPlasty (PSARVUP).
We wouldn’t want to leave anything to chance! We are worried sick that baby surgery could fail and we wouldn’t want to see our precious baby girl suffer in the future because of surgery complications!
It’s something we don’t even want to think of!
We know what to do, but we are also powerless on our own. Such expert surgical help is very expensive!
No Insurance Cover
Insurance won’t cover this surgery, the additional necessary interventions, and the follow-up.
We are miserable without your help.
And as days go by, new problems with the cloaca condition could crop up! We are already dealing with a lot to keep little baby without infections and pain.
Baby is 22 months old now. Doctors prefer that the repair surgery to be done for babies between 6 months and 24 months old. As they say the younger the baby, the better the results. And we are already running out of time!
Let’s help her get her surgery on time, sooner rather than later!
