Encopresis is a condition of fecal incontinence. It often occurs in children above age of 4 where they have already learned to use toilet. It occurs when a child resists having bowel movements, causing impacted stool to accumulate in the colon and rectum. Some of the primary symptoms involve leakage of stool or liquid stool infrequently, constipation with hard, dry stool, abdominal pain, lack of appetite and repeated urinary tract infections.
