Fistula In Ano

A fistula-in-ano is an abnormal tunnel-like tract or passage that forms between the anal canal or rectum and the skin around the anus. It typically occurs as a result of an infection in an anal gland, which can lead to the development of an abscess. If the abscess does not drain properly, a fistula may form as a connection between the infected gland and the skin.

Treatment for fistula-in-ano typically involves surgery to remove the fistula and promote proper healing. The specific surgical procedure may vary depending on the complexity and location of the fistula. In some cases, a seton (a piece of material like a thread or rubber band) may be placed to keep the fistula open and allow for proper drainage.

It's important to consult with a healthcare professional if you suspect you have a fistula-in-ano. They can perform a physical examination, possibly order imaging studies, and recommend an appropriate treatment plan. If left untreated, fistulas can lead to complications such as recurrent infections and abscesses. Surgical intervention is often necessary to address the underlying issue and prevent future problems.
