Symptoms may result from low fibre, poor nutrient, and/or insufficient water intake, which leads (...) to excessive hardening of the stool. This often starts as an acute problem but can progress to faecal impaction and chronic constipation. Particularly in young children, any cause of painful defecation may provoke active withholding. Withholding may worsen the constipation and lead to a vicious cycle. Duration of constipation and amount of stool burden may depend on capacity of the child's rectum, the degree of megarectum, and other factors including rectal sensory function.
