  • 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.

    A 37-year-old man was seen in the emergency department (ED) with worsening fatigue and dizziness for 1 week. He was known to be anemic and had refused admission for transfusion earlier in the day, but returned with worsening symptoms. The patient had a 15-year history of hidradenitis suppurative (HS). He had extensive involvement of the hairline, posterior neck, axilla, inguinal folds, scrotum, buttocks and low back. The patient had undergone multiple incision and drainages of abscesses, skin grafts, and removal of sweat glands to treat the HS.
