A 33-year-old woman with severe familial hidradenitis suppurativa of the vulva and perineum was treated with a combination of dexamethasone and a new synthetic gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist, leuprolide acetate. The clinical improvement paralleled the adrenal and ovarian suppression, as demonstrated by falling blood levels of testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, androstenedione and estradiol.
