An anal fissure is a superficial, but painful tear in the anal wall.
An anal fissure is a small tear in the skin that lines the anus. It causes an involuntary contraction of the anus and sharp pain when passing stool. Anal fissures are more likely to develop in children under the age of 2, and the elderly. Women who have just given birth also present a higher risk.
