Introduction: An abscess is a painful condition in which a collection of pus developed near the anus. Most anal abscesses are a result of infection from small anal glands.
The most common type of abscess is a perianal abscess. This often appears as a painful boil-like swelling near the anus. It may be red in color and warm to the touch. Anal abscesses located in deeper tissue are less common and may be less visible.
Methods and Material: There will be prospective study of 100 patients with Anorectal abscess admitted in the department of General Surgery. The present study was conducted over a period from August 2019 to August 2021.
Results: Perianal abscesses are very common. They are more common in men than in women.
Majority of the aerobic and anaerobic organisms cultured from the perianal abscesses are of GIT and skin flora origin. Although antibiotics may prevent suppuration if given early or may prevent spreading of an abscess, they cannot be substituted for drainage of abscess. An anal fistula indicates a chronic phase of an unhealed abscess. Because of this after drainage of perianal abscesses it is advised to do careful examination.
