Author(s): Porter ML, Kimball AB

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is an inflammatory skin disorder with many associated comorbidities, including obesity, metabolic syndrome, smoking, depression, arthritis, autoinflammatory syndromes, inflammatory bowel disease, and genetic syndromes. In addition, HS patients can suffer from a variety of diseases related to the chronic inflammatory nature of their HS such as cardiovascular disease and anemia. An understanding of these comorbidities and associations is essential for the management of HS, and routine screening for these entities should be considered in all HS patients.
