Currarino triad is a hereditary condition diagnosed when three abnormalities are noted: (1) an anorectal malformation; (2) an anterior sacral defect and (3) a presacral mass. We experienced 3 cases of Currarino triad with severe constipation. All cases had presacral mass and sacral bony defect. One case had rectovaginal fistula, other one case had holoprosencephaly. Presacral masses were lipomeningomyelocele and epidermoid or dermoid cyst. We report three cases of Currarino triad with brief review of the related literature.
