An anal fissure, although a minor problem, may lead to tremendous discomfort if not diagnosed promptly. Too often, the problem remains underrated or unnoticed by clinicians. However, when considered, the diagnosis is rather simple to make, and the treatment is usually quite effective. The diagnosis is usually made through a careful history and physical diagnosis is established by inspecting the anal region examination and a history of constipation is often present. A high residue diet and avoidance of constipation may lead to long term prevention.
