Q What are
symptoms of Anal Fistula?
Symptoms are usually a purulent
discharge and drainage of pus and/or stool near the anus, which can irritate
the outer tissues causing itching and discomfort. Pain occurs when fistulas
become blocked and abscesses recur. Flatus (gas) may also escape from the
fistulous tract. A fistula-in-ano is diagnosed when a probe has been passed
between the opening on the skin's surface and the interior opening.
