What is Fistula?
Anal fistula, also known as fistula-in-anoa, is a chronic infection that creates a passageway containing unhealthy tissue. One end of the tract connects to the anal canal, while the other end opens onto the skin, usually in the peri-anal region. The condition initially appears as a small swelling or hole, which can cause discomfort or pain when it becomes large. However, once the swelling subsides, pus and blood begin to drain and the pain usually subsides. Unfortunately, this cycle often repeats itself, leading to continued discomfort and complications.
What are the Fistula symptoms?
Fistula symptoms usually include discharge of pus, blood or watery fluid through the anus, or a mildly painful lumpy mass in the perianal area. In some cases, an inactive fistula may not show any symptoms, but when it becomes active, all the associated symptoms, as mentioned earlier, may appear.

Types of Fistulas?
Fistula can be divided into subcategories which are as follows:
Inter-sphincteric fistulas – These are the ones that are confined to the internal sphincter. There is also a strong possibility that these extend till the perineal skin.
Trans-sphincteric fistulas – These pass through external, internal sphincter in areas located between perianal skin and anal canal.
Supra-sphincteric fistulas – These pass upward around the external sphincter after crossing internal sphincter right above the puborectalis muscle.
Extra-sphincteric fistulas – These are the ones that are rare to find and also the most tough ones to be treated. In this type of fistula, the tract bypasses both the anal canal and sphincter, then pass from the levator ani muscle and ischiorectal fossa before exiting its way into the rectum.
Superficial fistulas – These types of fistula neither cross the internal sphincter nor the external ones. There is strong possibility that the fistula is present because of the crohns disease.

What is Anal Fissure ?
An anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the anus or anal canal (the opening through which stool passes out of the body). The fissure can be painful and may bleed. An anal fissure is a painful crack in the lining of the anal canal that may cause rectal bleeding. While this condition may be embarrassing to talk. It may cause itching, pain or bleeding.
