Hi thanks for your question.
The histopathology report of biopsied tissue from perianal area is normal.Stratified squamous epithelium and fibrocollagenous stroma are normal structure present in perianal area.Lymphocytic infiltration occur in chronic infection which produce inflammatory changes in tissue called as chronic inflammation.All these terms indicates normal report.There is nothing to worry.
Hope this answers your question
