Benign Anorectal Conditions: Evaluation and Management.

Am Fam Physician 2020 01;101(1):24-33

University of Virginia School of Medicine, Charlottesville, VA, USA.

Common anorectal conditions include hemorrhoids, perianal pruritus, anal fissures, functional rectal pain, perianal abscess, condyloma, rectal prolapse, and fecal incontinence. Although these are benign conditions, symptoms can be similar to those of cancer, so malignancy should be considered in the differential diagnosis. History and examination, including anoscopy, are usually sufficient for diagnosing these conditions, although additional testing is needed in some situations. Read More

Anorectal complaints are not uncommon in pediatric care, but the etiology and management can differ significantly from adults. Age is an important factor when considering etiology and management, distinguishing between infants, children, and adolescents. For all ages, malignancy is rarely a consideration, but a thorough examination of infants and children typically requires deep sedation or general anesthesia. Read More

Imaging of acute anorectal conditions with CT and MRI.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2017 02;42(2):403-422

Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University in St. Louis, 510 S. Kingshighway, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Anorectal disorders are a common cause of presentation to the emergency department (ED). While the most frequently encountered anorectal conditions, such as hemorrhoids and anal fissures, are relatively benign and do not require imaging for diagnosis or management, there are multiple potentially life threatening anorectal conditions for which imaging is an important component of evaluation, diagnosis, and management. Although computed tomography (CT) is the most commonly used imaging modality for evaluation of anorectal pathology in the ED, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has an increasingly important role in the detection, characterization and management of specific anorectal conditions.

Clin Ter 2015 ;166(5):194-9

Dipartimenti di Medicina Interna e Specialità Mediche, "Sapienza" Università di Roma, Italia.

Background And Aims: Our experience in colon-proctology showed the need to update the post-surgical complications score we published (1), adding others that may have an impact on outcome of treatment. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of a score obtained from the analysis of the quality of life and severity of complications after proctologic surgery.

Materials And Methods: Between January and December 2013, we studied 150 patients undergoing several ano-rectal surgeries for the presence of hemorrhoids of grade III and IV (63 patients), anal fissures (42 patients), anal fistulas (19 patients), rectocele (15 patients) and mucosal prolapse of the rectum (11 patients).
