Abstract: 
Rectal prolapse is a relatively common disease of children and is defined as a rectal mucosa protrusion or a fullthickness protrusion (all layers) from anus. The purpose of this retrospective study is the review of different surgical techniques used in our centers and recommendations for optimal surgical management of rectal prolapse. This study was based on a 19 years experience in rectal prolapse management at Amir Kabir and Bahrami hospitals.
In a total number of 67 cases sclerotherapy by 5% phenol in glycerin was the chosen procedure used. Since rectal prolapse is a self limiting disease and due to the fact of good results obtained from this technique with low morbidity, low cost and easy management, we recommend sclerotherapy for surgical treatment of rectal prolapse in pediatric age group
