||The haemorrhoidal disease is a very common disorder in proctology. It is favoured by many
factors. Although benign, its treatment is difficult. Our aim is to study the epidemiological, clinical
and anuscopic of haemorrhoidal disease. This was a cross sectional, descriptive and prospective
study covering a three-month period from 06 January 2014 to 10 April 2014. It involved
patients seen in gastroenterology consultation in internal medicine of the National Teaching Hospital
of Cotonou and in the digestive diseases Unit of the Hospital of Menontin. We recorded 182
patients including 57 cases of haemorrhoidal disease, a prevalence of 31.3%. The sex ratio was
1.10. The average age was 43 years with extremes of 18 and 88 years. Anal events were dominated
by rectal bleeding (54.4%) with a predominance of internal haemorrhoidal disease (87.7%).
Stage 2 evolution of the disease was the most represented (65.4%). Haemorrhoidal disease is a
common disorder seen mainly in actively producing people (young adult) with a male predominance.
