Abstract
Introduction: Pilonidal sinus is a disease in which chronic inflammatory condition occurs due to involution of hair fragments into the skin. Endoanal pilonidal sinus is an extremely rare condition with only 10 cases have been reported in literature. We present a case of endoanal pilonidal sinus with literature review.
Case Report: A 39-year-old male with perianal discharge and itching for six months duration. Clinical examination showed an external opening at 11 o'clock. Fistulectomy was performed. The histopathological examination confirmed endoanal pilonidal sinus.
Conclusion: Although extremely rare, pilonidal sinus may occur in the anal canal, especially in those patients with previous operation. Fistulectomy with open tract is an effective treatment.

Keywords: Endoanal pilonidal sinus, Hair containing sinus, Pilonidal fistula, Pilonidal sinus
