An anal fistula is almost always the result of a previous abscess (see description above). Just inside the anus there are small glands. When these glands get clogged, they may become infected and an abscess can develop.
A fistula is a small tunnel that forms under the skin and connects a previously infected anal gland to the skin on the buttocks outside the anus.
