  • Hidradenitis suppurativa

     Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a common (though rarely diagnosed), chronic skin disease characterized by clusters of abscesses or subcutaneous boil-like "infections" (oftentimes free of actual bacteria) that most commonly affects apocrine sweat gland bearing areas, such as the underarms, under the breasts, inner thighs, groin and buttocks.

  • Hidradenitis suppurativa

     Hidradenitis suppurativa commonly occurs around hair follicles, where many oil and sweat glands are found, such as in the armpits, groin and anal area.

     
    Medical management of hidradenitis suppurativa is difficult. The aim is to catch the disease in its early stages and treat and control these milder forms. Antibiotics are usual therapy (partly to eradicate secondary bacterial infection and partly for their anti-inflammatory action) and long courses may be necessary. Weight loss in obese patients and smoking cessation are recommended.

    HS continues to be a complex disease to treat. Like most dermatological disease it is likely not one disease but a reaction pattern to many factors that fall under one rubric for the sake of categorization simplicity. We refer to 5 kinds of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, erythrodermic, pustular and inverse, but we now are going to be able to stage HS. In particular, a French group defined three phenotypes of (“axillary-mammary,” “follicular,” and “gluteal”) HS by phenotype and this typing might be used to tailor treatment and shape clinical trials
