Summary of "An "easy" method to understand perianal sepsis."

Perianal sepsis is one of the most challenging diseases for the colorectal surgeon. The management of this pathology can be associated with high morbidity. Incorrect diagnosis is quite common with consequent improper drainage. This leads to a high number of recurrences, and the need for re-operation has been described in up to 50% of cases (1). When perianal sepsis is of cryptoglandular origin, it begins at the level of the dentate line, from where it could spread to the different perianal spaces and develop the submucous, intersphincteric or transsphicteric abscess.

When sepsis is associated with organ dysfunction distant from the site of infection, it is called severe sepsis. When sepsis is accompanied by HYPOTENSION despite adequate fluid infusion, it is called SEPTIC SHOCK.
