ABSTRACT: Fistula in ano is an uncommon disease in the pediatric age group. Treatment of complex and high fistulae is difficult and involves considerable morbidity and requires higher surgical skills. As far back as the 8th century AD, Sushrutha mentioned the use of a cutting ayurvedic seton in the treatment of fistula in ano. Though several workers have subsequently reported the use of Ksharsutra in adults there have been no published reports of its use in children. We report a case of traumatic fistula inano which we treated by this method and discuss its merits in the pediatric population.
