We present the case of a 14-year-old male with a history of small bowel transplantation for long segment Hirschsprung's disease who underwent Duhamel ileorectal pull-through procedure. In post-transplant, the patient had no restrictions and was not TPN-dependent. To improve his quality of life, he and his family were interested in closing the ileostomy and undergoing pull-through surgery. The complexity of the case includes the presence of an aganglionic rectal segment-a short root of the mesentery due to the small bowel transplant-and significant immunosuppression. At the moment, he is continent, doing well, and has not had any remarkable complications.
