Abstract: Anorectal suppuration can be complicated during the acute phase or 6 months after by the formation of fistula-in-ano. Anal fistula is manifested as chronic discharge or pain in the peri-anal region associated with abscess formation. Abscess may sometimes undergo spontaneous decompression forming anal fistula. Anal fistulas can be either simple or complex based on certain features. The principle of management includes eradication of the septic foci with preservation of anal continence. Study present a case of 42 year male with chronic complex ano-scrotal fistula which is treated by ligation of the intersphincteric fistula tract (LIFT) procedure.
