Anal Cryptitis

What are Anal Cryptitis and anal Papillitis?

Anal Cryptitis

Crypts are small anatomical structures situated between the anal papillae, which do not cause any symptoms unless they become inflamed. Anal cryptitis refers to the inflammation or infection of the anal crypts, glands, or tissues in the anal area.

Cryptic infection frequently leads to the dissolution of the crypt’s roof, ultimately resulting in the formation of an anal fissure. If an infected crypt persists chronically and fails to un-roof, it may progress into the development of an anal abscess and/or fistula.

Hypertrophied anal papilla

Hypertrophied anal papilla refers to an enlargement or overgrowth of the anal papilla, a small, benign projection or tissue fold located in the anal canal. While anal papilla is a normal anatomical structure, hypertrophy or enlargement of these papillae can occur due to various factors, leading to symptoms or concerns that may require evaluation and management by a healthcare provider or specialist.
