Hidradenitis suppurativa Research

Author(s): Hyland WT, Neale HW

Two cases of chronic hidradenitis suppurativa of the perineum are presented. Both patients suffered through many years of discomfort and social isolation, undergoing multiple temporizing procedures. The treatment course pursued is described in detail. It is hoped that a greater appreciation of the disabling nature of this disease will lead to earlier, definitive therapy.
