Though birth injury is common, neonatal perineal injuries are rare. They may be associated with high morbidity and mortality if not identified and adequately managed. Few reports of neonatal perineal birth injuries are found in literature. No neonate with this condition to our knowledge has been reported following caesarean section in our setting. We report our experience of a neonate with severe anterior perineal laceration managed in our centre with good outcome.
