WHAT IS A PERIANAL ABSCESS?

A perianal abscess is a painful, pus-filled swelling near the anus or rectum. Most of these abscesses are caused by a blockage in the anal gland that eventually leads to an infection. Left untreated, perianal abscesses may form anal fistulas or progress into a systemic infection.
