Özet

Objective: Perianal abscesses are common disorders of childhood. Predisposing conditions like immunodeficiency syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease should be investigated especially in older children. In infants younger than six months of age, the presence of a congenital anomaly such as perianal fistula should be ruled out. In the present study, it was aimed to evaluate the clinical and laboratory findings of perianal abscesses in childhood.
