Anal fistula presents as a nodular swelling in peri anal region. Occasional pus discharge is noticed followed by relief in pain and discomfort. As a treatment option; anti-biotics are tried in starting.
With out any doubt; Anti biotics benefit in this problem as these treat the underlying infection.
As we have understood that simple treating infection s not the solution for fistula we need to destroy the fistula tract so modern medicine recommends surgery as the only treatment for fistula. But there are many complications associated with surgery for fistula. Stool incontinence i.e. inability to hold stool/ recurrence of fistula are most disturbing among these. Even recent surgical interventions like VAAFT or MAFT are also having these complications. Considering these points Surgery can not be recommended as a full proof treatment for Anal fistula.
But anti biotics are not the treatment for Anal fistula. Anti biotics only treat the infection. Fistula tract is the most favorable site for developing infection. This is the reason that a fistula patients notices recurrent pus discharge. You treat infection.... for some time things will be fine..... again infection develops...... resulting in pus formation and associated discomfort....... take anti botics....... treat infection....... after some time again infection develops....... in this a vicious cycle starts and pt. finds himself helpless..
