The Authors report their own experience concerning the treatment of the sacrococcigeal pilonidal sinus disease. Results obtained with the "open" and "closed" techniques were compared. Although results were similar in terms of complications and relapses, the closed technique is to be preferred, because it allows a more rapid return to working activities. In the light of the new trends of sanitary economy a modulated treatment of the disease is suggested.
