Medication Summary

Drug therapy currently is not a component of the standard of care for this disease itself; however, some medications may be used to treat complications of Hirschsprung disease. See Treatment. Medications may include antibiotics for the treatment of enterocolitis or the use of botulinum toxin injection at the anal sphincter for the treatment of recurrent enterocolitis due to anal hypertonicity.
