Fistula is a permanent abnormal passageway between two organs in the body and the exterior of the body. Fistulas can arise in any body part, but they are most common in the digestive tract. They can also occur between blood vessels and in the urinary, reproductive, and lymphatic systems. Fistulas can occur at any age.
What are causative factors for Fistula?
An anal fistula is caused by an anal abscess. It can also be caused by factors that affect the intestines. The cause of the abscess is still unknown, although abscesses are more common in people with immune deficiencies, like HIV and AIDS. If an anal abscess bursts it can sometimes occur an anal fistula. A fistula may also develop if an abscess has not completely healed, or if the infected fluid has not been entirely drained away.

· Homeopathy works mainly on controlling the infection which helps prevent the formation and development of abscess.
· Homeopathy can abort the tendency to abscess formation and suppuration by rapidly increasing resistance.
