Verneuil’s disease (hidradenitis suppurativa) is a chronic inflammatory, suppurating, fistulizing and scar-producing disease of apocrine gland-bearing skin. Its transformation into epidermoid carcimona has been reported 38 times in literature. We describe two new cases – two males aged 67 and 68-years-old. The first one is still alive with no recurrence after one year and the second patient died 2 months after surgery, showing generalised scattering. This rare complication is interesting for two reasons. It only concerns perianal location and it targets mainly men. Surgical treatment consists of wide excision. However, it is often too late. The outcomes are critical for it has been reported a 50% rate of deaths within 2 years after surgery. It is therefore imperative that both general practitioners and dermatologists follow patients with Verneuil’s disease so that they can propose a preventive excision at the right time.
