The evaluation of bacteriology in perianal abscesses of 81 adult patients. Correspondence to. However, we should encourage the selective use of antimicrobial agents on a case-by-case basis, especially because there is no evidence that uncomplicated perianal abscesses can be safely treated only with drainage.
An anorectal abscess is a localized collection of pus in the perirectal spaces. Abscesses usually originate in an anal crypt. Symptoms are pain and swelling.
Glands near the anus can become blocked. This can lead to infection. If the infection can't drain, a collection of pus called an abscess may form. Symptoms of an abscess include anal or rectal pain, itching, swelling, and fever.
This study included evaluable patients randomized to a one week course of postoperative metronidazole and ciprofloxacin or no antibiotic. The antibiotics reduced the rate of subsequent fistula at three months, P Join the discussion. Please log in or register to comment.

It is associated with significant patient morbidity and societal cost. The use of antibiotics following drainage is controversial, with randomized controlled trials reporting opposing conclusions regarding their influence on the rate of fistula formation. Given the significant burden associated with their development, it is imperative to determine strategies to minimize their occurrence.
Most cases of perianal abscesses are sporadic, though there are certain situations which elevate the risk for developing the disease, such as diabetes mellitusCrohn's diseasechronic corticosteroid treatment and others. Ischiorectal, inter- and intrasphincteric abscesses have been described.
