dc.description.abstract A review of 229 cass of fistula-in-ano in our institution has shown that nonspecific inflammatory tissue lines the majority of tracts. Epithelial lining was present in 50 cases and was encountered proportionately more frequently in subjects under 10 years of age, thus supporting a congenital origin as well as infection of anal glands, earlier proposed by other workers. Intestinal contents may have a role in the foreign body response seen in many cases. Locally endemic infectious conditions do not appear to play a significant role in the cause of the disease. en_US
