Update on Hidradenitis Suppurativa : From Etiopathogenesis to Management

  title={Update on Hidradenitis Suppurativa : From Etiopathogenesis to Management},
  • Published 2018
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic, inflammatory and recurrent skin disease of the hair follicle. Prevalence is a matter of debate, with estimated rates as low as 0.00033% up to 4.1%. Hidradenitis suppurativa prevalence appears significantly higher in women with a mean age of onset in the early 20s. The primary histopathologic event seems to be a follicular hyperkeratosis with plugging, dilation and rupture of the hair follicle resulting in subsequent inflammation and formation of abscesses… Expand

Pathogenesis and pharmacotherapy of Hidradenitis suppurativa.
HS is a distressing chronic skin disorder characterized by abscesses, boils, fistulas and scarring, generally affecting the groins, anogenital area and axillae and a potential new therapy with the anti-psoriases agent acitretin is discussed. Expand
Hidradenitis suppurativa: a comprehensive review.
Hidradenitis suppurativa, also known as acne inversa, is a chronic, often debilitating disease primarily affecting the axillae, perineum, and inframammary regions and is considered a disease of follicular occlusion rather than an inflammatory or infectious process of the apocrine glands. Expand

Association of hidradenitis suppurativa disease severity with increased risk for systemic comorbidities
The objective of the current analysis of patients with moderate-to-severe HS was to identify the most common comorbidities, their prevalence according to the level of HS disease burden (high vs. medium) and any association between baseline characteristics and the risk for theComorbidity. Expand
