Encopresis

Encopresis is a condition in which a child has poor control over bowel movements and may have accidents in his or her underwear.

The person may not even notice the soiling.

Encopresis is present if a child age 4 or older has involuntary bowel movements in inappropriate places at least once a month for 3 months or more.
