Bottom Line: The clinical presentation of perianal abscesses due to foreign bodies (FBs) impacted in the anal canal mimics common causes of acute anal pain.Incision and drainage of the abscess, along with removal of the FB, results in immediate pain relief and cure.One case of perianal abscesses due to FB impacted in the anal canal is reported.

ABSTRACT
The clinical presentation of perianal abscesses due to foreign bodies (FBs) impacted in the anal canal mimics common causes of acute anal pain. The diagnosis can be established by digital rectal examination and/or proctoscopy, but may miss the presence of an FB. Incision and drainage of the abscess, along with removal of the FB, results in immediate pain relief and cure. Impacted FB must not be overlooked as an unusual cause of perianal abscess. One case of perianal abscesses due to FB impacted in the anal canal is reported.

On examination, he was in obvious distress, being unable to sit without experiencing excruciating rectal pain. He had a correct blood pressure and a normal pulse and respiratory rate. The body temperature (axillary) was 38.5°C. He had a perianal swelling at 6 o’clock position [Figure 1].
