Sanjay Mohanty, Matthew G. Mutch

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Patients with anorectal complaints develop both typical and unusual anorectal pathology, and colorectal surgeons should be aware of the ways in which altered immunocompetence affects the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of benign and malignant anorectal disease. After reviewing what defines altered immunocompetence or the immunocompromised state, this article will review how this changes diagnosis, management, and in some cases, prognosis of anorectal disease.
