Anal Fistulas in Regional Enteritis

  • J. Schier
Conference paper


Regional enteritis (Crohn’s disease) is an unspecific segmentary and granulomatous inflammation of the bowel wall. The disease shows a definite tendency to form fistulas. In the literature fistulas have been described in 60% of the cases. Of these 20 to 25% were anorectal fistulas (Table 1). Regional enteritis has also been reported to occur primarily in the rectum in a few cases.
