Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Lorenz D

Hidradenitis suppurativa is of high clinical and social significance, particularly if appearing as symptom of acne inversa and if located in the genitoanal region. Successful treatment includes early diagnosis together with thorough surgical therapy. The latter consists of wide local excision in order to remove all infected tissue. Localization and the size of defect as well as the experience of the surgeon predict the method of plastic reconstruction. Non-surgical procedures are only of supporting character either prior to or after surgery.
