Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic disfiguring skin disease affecting apocrine sweat glands, characterized by abscesses, cysts, or infections. There is currently no cure or a consistently effective treatment. HS is a challenging condition to diagnose and treat. We present a severe case to raise awareness of this disabling condition.
