anal fissures & HIV (TEAK)

Teak, quick question please...

Are Anal Fissures seen in HIV+ at an early stage of HIV or a later stage...
I have read some confusing articles and wanted some clarification please.
I also read that the HAART would cause this?

Thank you!!

Anal fissures has nothing to do with HIV.

Oh... I read...

"When fissures occur in locations other than the midline posteriorly or anteriorly, they should raise the suspicion that a problem other than trauma is the cause. Other causes of fissures are anal cancer, Crohn's disease, leukemia as well as many infectious diseases including tuberculosis, viral infections (cytomegalovirus or herpes), syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia , chancroid (Hemophilus ducreyi), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Among patients with Crohn's disease, 4% will have an anal fissure as the first manifestation of their Crohn's disease, and half of all patients with Crohn's disease eventually will develop an anal ulceration that may look like a fissure."
