 A three-year-old girl was admitted to our hospital for rectal prolapse. Laparoscopic rectopexy was performed because her rectal prolapse developed frequently and accompanied pain. Laparoscopic examination showed that her flabby rectum was in the Douglas pouch. We pulled up the rectum and sutured her rectum to the anterior surface of the sacrum. She was discharged on the 2nd postoperative day, and still has not experienced recurrence. For rectal prolapse in children, conservative treatment is first performed, but surgical treatment is selected when it is ineffective. Laparoscopic rectopexy can be performed safely not only in adults but also in children, which is a useful technique for rectal prolapse in children.
