Four Cases of Anorectal Abscess After Hip Contusion While on Skis


Infection of the ischiorectal space may spread rapidly and extensively resulting in an anorectal abscess. The infection commonly results from hematogenous infection, a ruptured anal hemorrhoid, anal fissures, prolapsed thrombosed internal hemorrhoid, or in association with injury of the anal skin or mucous membrane by the nozzle of an enema syringe. I present here four cases of posterior anorectal abscess (PAA) resulting from a hip contusion sustained while skiing during the past four ski seasons.
