A fistula is a passageway or a connection which is created abnormally, linking two organs together. Ideally, the two organs should not be connected. This is why fistula is an abnormality of the body which must be treated as soon as it is discovered. Fistulas can develop between different organs like the intestine and the skin or the vagina and the rectum. There are other places where a fistula can develop as well but these are the common ones.
Fistulas in the urinary tract is developed as openings in the urinary tract or connection between the urinary tract organ and another organ. Some people may suffer from anal fistulas which exists between the epithelialized surface of their anal canal and the perianal skin. There are other types of fistulas which can occur in the intestine where two parts of the intestine may get connected or the intestine may connect to the skin or the colon. All of these different types of fistulas can be very discomforting for the person who suffers. The severity of the fistula can cause anything from mild to extreme pain.
