Yes, very rarely. A fistula is an abnormal communication between two areas of the body. Any inflammatory or traumatic event can cause a fistula. Though very rare, in theory a parasitic infection could cause this.
Parasites. Yes, there are some parasites which can do this, including ascaris and several others.
Very rare, not impos. This is very rare, but not impossible. Any source of trauma or chronic inflammation can cause a gastrointestinal fistula.
No. Viral infection cannot cause gastrointestinal fistula, or an abnormal connection between the intestine and another structure (e.g. The skin). This is caused by surgery, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, radiation, or a variety of other causes, but not from a virus.
Yes. For instance an infection in the wall of the colon triggered by diverticulitis can eat through the colon lining and cause a channel to form between the colon and a nearby structure like the bladder. This channel is called a fistula. In this example one symptom might be passing gas out your bladder (pneumoturia).
Yes. Bacteria can cause a fistula. Bacteria are felt to play a role in crohn's disease, which can result in fistula. Also, complications of infections such as diverticulitis can result in abscess and fistula formation.
Not really. These two things are not really related. It would have to be something exceptionally rare.
Yes. If the skin infection is near or around the fistula site (an external open site connected to the bowel).
Yes, very rarely. There are a few types of parasitic worms that are capable of getting into the liver and bile ducts. This happens almost exclusively outside of the United States.

Maybe. If it extends into the vagina you will require a c section.
Yes. If infection involving fistula occurs.
No one answer. Parasitic infestation may not increase bilirubin; it may be minimally elevated in malaria, and babesia; bile duct blockage by round worm could cause high bilirubin, liver fluke and advanced shistosomiasis would raise bilirubin depending on the parasite burden.
Yes. A knife wound to the abdomen is likely to cause a puncture to the intestines. When this happens the contents of the bowel can leak into the abdominal cavity. This requires immediate surgery to close the hole and wash out the contaminated abdomen. If there are many penetrating wounds or a delay in closure this can result in formation of a fistula-abnormal connection to the skin or other organ.
Knife wound. If the knife is long enough and the patient unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a piercing, then it is possible that the injury could result in fistulas with the gastrointestinal tract.
Can small multiple liver cysts[subcentimeter] seen on CT, be caused by a parasitic infection? [ health not good], and I m worried about such infection
Possible. A form of hydatid cyst may present with multiple small cysts in the liver. However, unless you have been tending to sheep and were exposed to dog feces, it is highly unlikely that you have this parasitic infection. You should talk to the doctor who ordered the test and with her/his help consult the radiologist who read the CT. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.
