Anal stenosis is a rare but serious disabling condition following ano rectal surgery, anal trauma, carcinoma, post radiotherapy and Crohn's disease. 90% of the anal stenosis is causes by overzealous haemorrhoid surgery.

In our cases disabling anal stenosis was for last 1 year following sclerotherapy of haemorrhoids leading to severe anal stenosis with diaphragmatic ring like annular stenosis.
