The Network for Congenital Uro-REctal malformations (CURE-Net) is a federal program for the research of  Malformations of the uro-rectal septum including anorectal malformations (ARM) and the exstrophy-epispadias-complex (EEC).  This congenital malformations arise by reason of embryonic aberration of the uro-rectal septum and pose an enormous challenge for patients and their families. The aim of CURE-Net is to use modern genetic and molecular biological research to understand the causes of uro-rectal malformations and to evaluate the postoperative treatment outcome and different aftercare procedures by multicenter, clinical and psychosocial research via standardized examination procedures prospectively and by a cross-sectional study. We invite each concerned person, each physician who is in contact with these patients and each interested person to participate to the
