Chronic hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) can cause lymphoedema, leading to novel presentations. We present the case of a man with chronic HS causing penile oedema and subsequent degloving. He underwent direct excision with a good result. Chronic HS patients should be warned about problems related to lymphoedema and reviewed regularly to resolve problems early.
