Answer

The following are other problems to be considered:

  • Primary presacral or sacrococcygeal sinus

  • Furuncle or carbuncle

  • Syphilitic granuloma

  • Tuberculous granuloma

All of the above are rarely seen but should be considered in the face of atypical or variant history or physical examination findings. Readers are left to explore all of these topics in further detail as indicated.
