We report a case of a 35-year-old male who presented to our emergency room with debilitating, complete, irreducible, edematous rectal prolapse along with retention of urine. Due to marked edema and inflammation, the reduction was unsuccessful under general anesthesia; hence a conservative approach was considered. With local sugar application for a week, the edema was reduced and via manual digital maneuver, the prolapse was reduced with anal encirclement the day after to maintain the reduction. With our experience, where laproscopic facilities were unavailable, we wish to highlight the role of nonsurgical/conservative conventional methods of management of such severe cases that are associated with edema and present to clinics/institutes where limited surgical facilities are available.
