Background: Anal fissure is commonly seen in today’s era. The incidence of fissure is 10% of the total cases attending proctology clinics. Lifestyle has an important impact on anorectal diseases along with improper dietary habits. Aims: To analyse whether there is any relation between night awakening and fissure-in-ano or not, this study was undertaken. Materials and Methods: A total of 100 subjects who were working at night since at least 6 months were selected. A prepared questionnaire was given to the subjects and they were asked to fill it genuinely. Subjects who were having fissure-in-ano were observed and noted. Different groups were formed on the basis of the days of night duty of the employees per week, type of night duty, and dietary habits of the individuals, and assessment was carried out. Observation: Sixty-two subjects were found to have some of the complaints listed in the questionnaire. They were examined. Among those 62 subjects, 43 subjects were diagnosed with fissure-in-ano. Conclusion: The study revealed that 8.68% is the incidence of fissure-in-ano in night duty workers, which is found to be significant.
