Description

Highlights •Adult Hirschprung’s Disease (AHD) can be a difficult diagnosis to make, due to its rarity.•We report a possible case of AHD and conduct a systematic review of the literature.•A typical patient would be male, average age of 30-years-old, with a history of chronic constipation complicated by repeated acute obstruction.•Surgical resection, such as with Duhamel’s procedure, is curative.•Early identification of these patients and definitive diagnoses would eliminate unnecessary and ineffective surgical interventions.
