Currarino triad

The Currarino (or ASP) triad is characterised by:

  • anorectal malformation or congenital anorectal stenosis
  • sacrococcygeal osseous defect
  • presacral mass

An association with epidermoid cysts of the central nervous system is described 5

History and etymology

It was originally described by paediatric radiologist Guido Currarino in 1981 3.

The Currarino triad should not be confused with Currarino-Silverman syndrome, the eponymous name for pectus carinatum type 2 deformity.
