Earlier observations reported that the contractile responses in anorectal
malformations with pouch colon which failed to demonstrate spontaneous contractions  whereas another observation demonstrated spontaneous contractions in 66% of Hirschsprung's disease patients.
The diagnostic challenge stems from the fact that most common anorectal
diseases--whether benign or malignant--present with the same constellation of symptoms: pain, bleeding, itching or burning, swelling, and leakage.

This case report emphasizes the importance of a broad differential diagnosis for chronic anorectal
Peri anal fistula may be associated with a number of disease processes like previous anorectal
abscesses; tuberculosis; ulcerative colitis; crohn's disease; conditions producing pelvic abscess as acute appendicitis, sigmoid diverticulitis, salpingo-oophoritis and rectal, obstetrical or gynaecological operations5.
manometric measurement results were found significantly lower in group 1 than in group 3 (p<0.
malformations are congenital anomalies that occur in approximately 1 in 5000 live births and range in severity from anal stenosis or imperforate anus to complex deformities such as cloacal exstrophy.
Rather than POP, the publications suggesting that abnormal anorectal
functions are associated with lower gastrointestinal symptoms also support this (25, 26).
Six key structures may be involved in perineal injury: the anorectal
mucosa, internal anal sphincter, external anal sphincter, vaginal wall and perineal skin, bulbocavernosus muscle, and transverse perineal muscles.
mucosa is vulnerable to HIV due to lack of appropriate protective humoral immune barrier and for being more susceptible to traumatic lesions then the vaginal mucosa.
trachomatis, and positive anorectal
specimens are referred to the French National Reference Center for Chlamydiae (Bordeaux, France) for LGV testing, using a real-time PCR targeting a 36-bp deletion in the pmpH gene (9).
The most common cause for the condition is an anorectal
abscess, which ruptured spontaneously or was surgically drained.
