Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic, suppurative, and cicatricial cutaneous disease with clinical manifestations including inflammatory lesions and nodules, abscesses, and sinus tracts. We describe an unusual case of peristomal lesions that may represent hidradenitis suppurativa. Peristomal hidradenitis suppurativa has not been previously reported. This unusual complication demonstrates the need for a thorough patient history to identify any systemic disease that may contribute to peristomal skin problems.
