What is Anal Fistula?

Fistula is a lower GI and rectal ailment where there are multiple parallel pathways for faecal matter. here, we see a tunnel inside the anal pathway that ends somewhere in the skin around it. In the case of an anal fistula, we observe a ruptured abscess turning into the fistula. Fistula Generally results in infection in the area due to the lodging of faecal matters.

What Causes Fistula

Fistula is usually caused by rupture of abscess in the rectal pathway. Several glands inside the anal canal can sometimes get infected. The infection causes swelling and the formation of abscesses. This abscess, if not treated, may rupture, making a hole in the skin. This hole is connected to the anal cavity and pathway. This creates an alternate pathway for stools. This alternate motion pathway is called a fistula.

In rare cases, fistula is caused by injuries in the anal are resulted due to anal intercourse. It can also be caused due to tuberculosis or AIDS. Other causes for fistula may be a progression of piles, anal fissures, or other bowel inflammation conditions like Crohn’s disease or colitis.
