Question Options:
1.) Encopresis
2.) Crohn’s disease
3.) Hirschsprung’s disease
4.) Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Correct Option(s): 3

Rationale:
Option 1: Encopresis is the presence of stool incontinence in clients over 4 years of age. This condition is not associated with the absence of Meissner’s and Auerbach’s autonomic plexus.
Option 2: Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. It is not associated with the absence of Meissner’s and Auerbach’s autonomic plexus.
Option 3: A client with Hirschsprung’s disease will have the absence of Meissner’s and Auerbach’s autonomic plexus resulting in a lack of motility.
Option 4: Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition where the stomach contents are expelled through the lower esophageal sphincter. It is not associated with the absence of Meissner’s and Auerbach’s autonomic plexus.
