The rarity of rectal carcinoma in children has prompted us to report this patient who presented with bleeding per rectum and constipation. Histopathological examination of biopsy revealed the growth to be a colloid carcinoma of rectum and it was inoperable on exploratory laparotomy. There are three factors which contribute to an overall poor prognosis of rectal carcinoma in children viz. delay in diagnosis, advanced stage of disease and poorly differentiated histology.
