 The histological features of anal lesions in patients with Crohn's disease remains unclear, possibly because it is described in textbooks without the histological pictures. An early diagnosis of Crohn's disease with asymptomatic intestinal lesions promotes good prognosis of the patients. In addition, the histological characteristics of anal lesions in Crohn's disease are fundamentally the same as those of intestinal lesions. However, secondary development, including abscess formation, should be considered while evaluating the histological features of the lesions.
