Encopresis or chronic fecal incontinence is a psychological disorder with a physical manifestation. This dysfunction tends to weaken the ego since the self-image is debased and thus places stress on the child’s psychosocial development. It most frequently occurs in boys of latency age. The child’s soiling tends to engender frustration, anger, and guilt in the mother; disgust and disappointment in the father; embarrassment in the siblings; and self-mortification in the encopretic child.
