The surgical options for the treatment of axillary hidradenitis suppurativa are discussed. A new light-weight splint is described which will allow comfortable immobilisation of the shoulder at 45 degrees yet permit full forearm movement and adequate access to the axilla for dressings. We have found the splint of benefit in the management of this conditions by promoting the primary healing of split skin grafts.
