Anal Fistula

An anal fistula is a small channel that develops between the anal canal and the skin near the anus due to recurrent infection of a gland in the anal canal.

Symptoms of Anal Fistula

  • Recurrent infection of the anal canal
  • Ongoing pain or swelling
  • Drainage of pus and fluid from the abscess

Causes of Anal Fistula

Infection of a gland in the anal canal that results in an abscess. When the abscess bursts, pus that drains from it forms a tract that eventually becomes an anal fistula after recurrent infections.

An anal fistula almost always requires surgery to treat, therefore medical attention should be sought should you notice any symptoms.
