Abstract

Fistula in ano is a disease known to the humanity since ancient times. It is a chronic illness which is, though not fatal but quite discomforting and troublesome to the patient and often puts deep impact on the quality of life of a patient. Despite many advances in medical field, it still poses a big challenge to the surgeon as there is no suitable curative treatment available so far. For the same reason, Sushruta (500BC) has aptly described this disease as one of the Ashtamahagada. He was first person to describe the etiology, clinical features and management. So in present article an attempt is made to enlighten the different treatment methods of  Bhagandara.
