Anorectal Abscess and Fistula

Anorectal abscess and fistula are two conditions that can cause pain and discomfort in the rectal area. Anorectal abscesses are pus-filled pockets that form in the tissue around the anus, while fistulas are abnormal connections that develop between the anus and surrounding tissue. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including bacterial infections, inflammatory bowel disease, and trauma.
