Hirschsprung disease

Causes

Does anything make Hirschsprung disease worse?

The symptoms of Hirschsprung disease can become worse if treatment is delayed. Without clearing and/or removing the affected part of the colon, the colon can tear or become inflamed. An affected person can die if these complications occur.
