An anal fistula is an abnormal tunnel or a communication between the inside of the anal canal where there is usually an internal opening and the skin outside the anus or perianal skin and skin of the buttocks. This tunnel is known as the fistula tract or the primary fistula tract, which can go through varying proportions of the anal sphincter, the muscle that surrounds the anus and keeps us continent and stops us from leaking and soiling fecal matter.
A majority of anal fistula are so called idiopathic or crypto-glandular, where an infection within the anal gland is thought to be the origin of the infection inside the anal canal between the two muscles and from this, the tract or the tunnel forms and points to various directions either to the buttocks or comes between the muscles and different types of fistula are formed. A smaller proportion of anal fistula are caused by inflammatory bowel condition such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis and there are other rare causes such as tuberculosis and other rare infections, sometimes radiotherapy treatment for example to treat the prostate or other pelvic organs such as the cervix can cause fistula and rarely anal or rectal cancer can produce the fistula.
