Anal marisca in a female patient. These are small painless masses located near the anus, and are due to external haemorrhoids (dilation of the veins of the anus, also known as piles). External haemorrhoids disappear spontaneously but sometimes leave a type of scar, which is the marisca. These tag-like masses are harmless but may be surgically removed if they are large or cause discomfort.
