An anal fissure or fissure-in-ano is a small cut or tear in the lining of the anus. Anal fissures usually extend from the anal opening and are usually located posteriorly in the midline. Untreated fissures develop a hood like skin tag (sentinel piles) which cover the fissure and cause discomfort and pain.
It may be caused by constipation (common cause), passing of large, hard stools, or by prolonged diarrhea. Some anal fissures become chronic and deep and do not heal.The most common cause of non-healing is spasming of the internal anal sphincter muscle which results in impaired blood supply to the anal mucosa.
