Anal fistulas are generally the result of an anal gland that has developed a pus-filled infection (abscess). This infection results in an abscess that drains spontaneously or is drained surgically through the skin next to the anus. The fistula then creates a tunnel underneath the skin and connects with the infected gland.
Most of the time, an abscess causes a fistula. it's rare some conditions that can cause an anal fistula include: Crohn's disease, tuberculosis, sexually transmitted diseases, or an illness that affects your bowels movements.

Surgery is almost necessary to cure an anal fistula and is usually done on a daycare basis. For a simple fistula that isn’t too close to your anus, in this procedure, the surgeon will cut open the skin and muscle surrounding the tunnel. this allows the fistula tract to heal from the bottom up. In the case of a more complex fistula, the surgeon might place a special tube called a seton into the opening. This helps drain the infected fluid before surgery.
