dc.description.abstractA case history of physiotherapy given to a 12 yr old girl, suffering from rectal incontinence as a result of necrosis of the anal tissue and disuse of the pelvic floor muscles, is described. Conventional pelvic faradism was administered with an intra anal Scott type electrode with little increase of tone of the pelvic floor muscles. However, when the same technique was used, and administering surged faradic type current under anesthesia to obtain maximum contraction of the pelvic floor muscles, muscle tone increased dramatically and a fully competent anal sphincter was regained.
