Hidradenitis suppurativa: A neglected disease in Indigenous Australians

Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Vekic DA, Woods J, Cains GD

We report the first case series of hidradenitis suppurativa in patients of Indigenous Australian heritage. The incidence and ethnicity of populations affected by this condition are not known. The high comorbid disease burden and socioeconomic disadvantage that is well recognised in the Indigenous Australian population poses significant challenges to therapeutic outcomes.
