Hemorrhoidal Disease (HD) is widely diffused throughout the general population. The system of classification currently used to categorize this pathology is that of Goligher (1975). This system only defines the morphology of the most represented hemorrhoid bearing. Several attempts in literature have been made to replace this system, but as of yet, no single system has been universally accepted. Some studies, however, have succeeded in identifying specific characteristics, besides morphology, that would be able to aptly define HD. An analysis of this literature, with careful consideration of the scores that have previously been proposed, is necessary in order to deepen and stimulate discussion about a possible new definition of HD.
