BACKGROUND: Sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease is a chronic, well-recognized entity, characterized by the recurrent formation of an abscess or draining sinus over the sacrococcygeal area. It is one of the most common surgical problems. Rarely, chronic inflammation and recurrent disease leads to malignant transformation, most commonly to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). CASE PRESENTATION: We describe an extremely unusual case of SCC developing in a 60-year-old patient with a chronic pilonidal sinus complicated by an anal fistula...

BACKGROUND Umbilical pilonidal sinus (UPS) is a rare disease of young, hirsute, dark men with deep navels and poor personal hygiene. UPS could easily be misdiagnosed and mistreated due to its rarity and lack of awareness of the condition by physicians. However, the diagnosis is easy to establish with physical examination and a detailed history. Although it is being diagnosed and reported more frequently, there is still no consensus regarding best treatment options. CASE REPORT In this report, we present two cases of UPS, one in a man and one in a woman, who had typical symptoms of pain, swelling, and intermittent malodorous discharge from the umbilicus...

BACKGROUND: No single treatment yet exists for pilonidal disease that has a short healing time, good cosmetic results, and a low rate of recurrence. Phenol crystal application and diathermy ablation through an endoscope have been used for the treatment of pilonidal disease, but this cohort is the first one to combine them. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the safety, effectiveness, and short- and long-term outcomes of crystalized phenol treatment combined with endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment for pilonidal disease...

BACKGROUND We present a clinical experience with a new local flap procedure, namely the triangular closure technique, for reconstruction of sacrococcygeal skin defects resulting from excision of the pilonidal sinus. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this technique, the defect is surgically converted to a triangle in shape. Then, the triangular defect is closed by transposition of 2 skin flaps designed in an unequal z-plasty manner. Over 6 years, this technique has been used for closure of defects of chronic pilonidal sinus disease in 27 patients (6 females, 21 males)...

INTRODUCTION: Pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is a highly debatable disorder regarding its surgical management, despite an assortment of surgical techniques described in the medical literature. The aim of this report is to provide an alternate semi-closed surgical method for treatment of PSD, with early recovery and a satisfactory cosmetic result. METHODS: In this retrospective study, 34 patients underwent surgical treatment for primary PSD; 32 male and 2 female. Patients were suffering from primary PSD, with the cyst located in the gluteal midline...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Pilonidal sinus is a disease in the sacrococcygeal region diagnosed through the purulent discharges of the above-said region. Although the exact pathology and etiology of those suffering from pilonidal is not clear yet, the presence of hair seemingly plays a major role in the process of infection and the granulation tissue. Several techniques have been identified for pilonidal surgery. These techniques primarily fall within two categories: Primary repair and Lay open...

A pilonidal sinus is a chronic inflammatory process, the etiology of which is still not fully elucidated. It frequently presents at the sacrococcygeal region (typical) and rarely at extrasacrococcygeal (atypical) locations, including the interdigital, axillary, inguinal, and umbilical regions, as well as the neck, face, and scalp. A 46-year-old man presented with a thirty-year history of a slowly growing nodule on the postauricular area of the scalp. The lesion was excised and diagnosed as a pilonidal sinus based on the clinical and histological findings...

OBJECTIVES: One of the most important surgical issues applied in the treatment of pilonidal sinus disease is wound healing. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) gel on accelerating wound healing in these patients. METHODS: In this randomized, controlled, parallel group clinical trial, 110 patients were randomly allocated into two parallel groups with the same size (controls and treatment arm) after meeting inclusion and exclusion criteria...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of pilonidal sinus disease still remains challenging. Despite many non-surgical and surgical methods, no consensus emerged for the best treatment. We describe a new innovative technique consisting in the destruction of the pilonidal cyst with a radial laser probe (FILAC(TM), Biolitec, Germany). The energy delivered causes the destruction of the sinus epithelium and the simultaneous obliteration of the tract. METHOD: In December 2015, we retrospectively studied the data of our 40 first patients operated with this technique between September 2014 and September 2015...

REVIEW
Arda Isik, Oguz Idiz, Deniz Firat
Pilonidal sinus is a very common inflammatory disease of the gluteal region. The ideal method of pilonidal sinus treatment should have a low recurrence rate with minimum excision. Moreover, the treatment method should have a short hospitalization time, should let the patient return to his normal life rapidly, should cause minimum loss of labour and should result a small scar only. In the presented review, modalities in pilonidal sinus treatment in the light of current information in the literature are evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Conventional treatment of pilonidal disease with wide excision is associated with high morbidity. We describe the short- and long-term results and the impact on the health care system of a simple operation performed in the office under local anaesthesia, consisting of minimal excision of pilonidal sinuses with primary suture-the modified Lord-Millar operation (mLM). METHODS: All patients operated with mLM from February 2008 till November 2012 were prospectively followed for recurrence by telephone interviews and examination of symptomatic patients till July 2015...

Umbilical Pilonidal Sinus (UPS) is a rare differential diagnosis of umbilical disease as encountered by general surgeons. They usually present with history of pain and umbilical discharge. Young active adolescent males with dense hairy abdomen with a deep naval are at risk of developing this disease. There are no consensus guidelines for the management of this disease probably because of its rarity. Treatment depends on the type of presentation. Most of the cases are managed by conservative treatment with hair extraction and personal hygiene...

Patients with umbilical disorders who present with complaints of a mass, pain, tenderness or discharge will typically have a differential diagnosis including umbilical hernias, pyogenic granuloma, endometriosis, Sister Mary Joseph nodule and urachal or epidermoid cysts. We would add the inclusion of pilonidal sinus disease and present the case of a patient with an umbilical pilonidal cyst. The use of a cryocone with lubricating jelly, in this case, proved to be an easy and convenient method that aided in visualization and diagnosis of this fairly uncommon condition...

INTRODUCTION: Pilonidal sinus is a common benign disease that accounts for almost 15% of anal suppurations while basal cell carcinoma is the most common malignancy of the sun-exposed area occurring mainly on the head and neck. We report a case of basal cell carcinoma presented with signs and symptoms of PNS. A 40-year-old male presented with swelling of the lower back for 2 years. On examination, there was a round, mobile, soft 4×2.5cm mass on the sacrococcygeal area. Ultrasound showed subcutaneous cystic lesion...

Pilonidal sinus is a cystic disease that occurs most often in the sacrococcygeal region. Surgical excision and coverage with a skin flap require postoperative bed rest. Most affected patients are young adults who find it difficult to obtain adequate postoperative bed rest owing to their work. The purpose of this study is to review the effectiveness of our ambulatory surgery procedure for pilonidal sinus, which involves tract excision and open treatment followed by at-home irrigation. We reviewed the 9 cases of chronic pilonidal sinus treated at our out-patient clinic by ambulatory surgery consisting of open excision without skin closure...
