Peri anal fistula iscommonly seen in men, between the age group of 31 to 40 years with mean age of 39.74±11.92. Grade IV (26.2%) fistulas is the most common type followed by Grade III (21.3%) and Grade II (21.3%) fistulas. The late presentation of G IV fistula in our study population explains the social stigma precluding the individuals from approaching medical assistance and thereby emphasis on creating medical awareness.
