Fistula: Tract to Private

A fistula in ano is an abnormal connection or tunnel between the rectum or anus and the skin near the anus. Symptoms include pain, discharge, and drainage of pus or stool from the opening near the anus. Fistulas can be caused by abscesses, injury, infection, cancer, infections like TB or inflammatory bowel disease. Treatment for fistula typically involves surgery to repair the abnormal connection and prevent recurrence. The surgical options include fistulotomy, seton placement, or advancement flap procedure. In some cases, initially treatment may also include antibiotics to clear any infection and medication to reduce inflammation. It's important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have a fistula in ano, as it can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
