Epidemiological, clinical and therapeutic aspects in special situations: hidradenitis suppurativa in paediatric patients.

[Article in English, Spanish]

Hidradenitis suppurativa usually develops in the third decade of life and is infrequent in children and adolescents. This article reviews the scant epidemiological clinical and therapeutic data that are available for this age group. From the epidemiological point of view, reports have been more numerous in children, which has been related to hormone alterations and with a possibly higher genetic load than when this disease develops in adults. Clinically, it seems that when hidradenitis suppurativa develops in young patients, there is greater disease extension. The therapeutic approach is especially complex, since there is hardly any scientific evidence to serve as a basis for decisions. The challenges posed by this disease are to help patients accept their disease, recommend them healthy lifestyle habits and choose the most appropriate treatment for each patient.
