OBJECTIVE: Treatment of perianal abscesses requires prompt surgical drainage and antimicrobial therapy. However, we should encourage the selective use of antimicrobial agents on a case-by-case basis, especially because there is no evidence that uncomplicated perianal abscesses can be safely treated only with drainage. For this reason, it is important to identify the causative organisms; therefore, we accessed the microbiological analysis of these patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this study, 81 consecutive adult patients with perianal abscesses, who presented at a university hospital in Diyarbakir from January 2004 to December 2006, were included. Clinical and laboratory data, and results of microbiological analysis were recorded. RESULTS: All specimens, except seven, yielded bacterial growth. Escherichia coli, Bacteriodes spp., coagulase-negative Staphylococci, and Staphylococcus aureus were the most common isolated organisms. CONCLUSION: In contrast to other investigators, this study demonstrated that aerobic organisms are the predominant isolates in these infections.
