Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Abstract: Hidradenitis suppurativa remains a clinical challenge to patients and physicians alike. Physicians should be familiar with the impact this disease has on the patient and with the range of treatments available. Use of simple incisions as treatment is strongly discouraged. Additional pathogenic as well as therapeutic studies are necessary.

“…Clinical features which help to differentiate HS and acne conglobata are closed comedones and the type of scars; closed comedones are absent in HS in contrast to acne conglobata. The rope-like ‘bridged scars’ are easily differentiated from hypertrophic and/or keloidal acne scars and may be considered specific to HS [2,4]. All 12 patients had round depressed scars resembling the U-shaped ‘boxcars’ that have been described in acne [5,6].…”

“…While its aetiology remains unknown, the organs involved and the pathogenesis of the disease are thought to be well understood [2]. Several studies have identified the hair follicle as the core element of hidradenitis, prompting some authors to suggest that the disease be renamed acne inversa, although substantial differences exist between the 2 diseases [1,3,4,5,6]. Ultrasound investigations have shown hair follicles to be dilated in the non-involved perilesional skin of hidradenitis patients, while histological studies have found signs of follicular plugging and dilated, cyst-like hair follicles, as well as the absence of lymphadenopathy [4,5,6,7,8,9,10].…”
