Background/Purpose: Anal fissures would result in constipation in children, worsening the clinical picture, thus, justifying a fast response therapy. In this randomized, prospective, placebo-controlled study, it was aimed to determine the response rates to fissure treatment by liclocaine, EMLA and GTN on the 10th day and after 8 weeks of therapy. Related childhood literature is scarce, and EMLA is tried for the first time in fissure treatment.
