ABSTRACT: A rare case of carcinoma rectum in a 9 year old boy presented with bleeding per rectum for 9 months. The boy had a huge growth in the rectum involving the posterior and lateral walls. A curative anterior resection of rectum was done. The free margins of the resected specimen showed a single perirectal node involvement. Other tissues were free of metastasis. It was reported as signet ring carcinoma on histology. There was no recurrence after 3 months.
