OBJECTIVE: to evaluate the primary outcome of local complications and late recurrence in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa undergoing radical resection and specific reconstruction. METHODS: we conducted a retrospective analysis of the medical records of patients attended by the Plastic Surgery Service of the Clinics Hospital, Medical School, USP, between 2010 and 2016. We included patients who underwent radical resection of hidradenitis suppurativa in advanced stage and reconstruction through primary closure, grafts or flaps...

Non-invasive bedside imaging tools are becoming more prevalent for assessing cutaneous lesions. Ultrasound used at specific frequencies allows us to assess margins of lesions to minimize the extent of the biopsy that is performed and improve cosmetic outcomes. Vascularity, seen on Doppler ultrasound and contrast-enhanced ultrasound, and stiffness, assessed on tissue elastography, can help differentiate between benign and malignant lesions for clinicians to be more judicious in deciding whether to biopsy. Moreover, research has shown the efficacy in using ultrasound in monitoring flares of hidradenitis suppurativa, a disease affecting apocrine gland-rich areas of the body, for which the current gold standard involves examining and scoring inflammatory lesions with the naked eye...

Introduction: Hidradenitis suppurativa and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis syndrome are chronic, debilitating diseases involving apocrine gland-bearing skin inflammation and bone inflammation, respectively. Although both often present with multiple comorbidities, single patient co-presentation is rare. Methods/Results: This study reports the 8-year treatment course of a 40-year-old man with hidradenitis suppurativa and synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteitis syndrome, and reviews relevant literature...

BACKGROUND: Multiple treatment modalities were introduced for treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) but mostly with unsatisfactory results. OBJECTIVE: In this prospective randomized right-left intra-individual controlled study, we studied the safety and efficacy of combined treatment with fractional CO2 laser and long pulsed Nd : YAG (1064 nm) laser in treatment of HS. METHODS: Twenty adult patients with HS were randomized into this study...

Many cases of superinfected hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) involve multiple species of bacteria, but gas-producing infections are rare and can complicate the clinical picture. Additionally, recognizing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) as a complication of longstanding HS is imperative. Herein, we present a unique case of a severe emphysematous HS that was initially mistaken for Fournier gangrene and eventually diagnosed as superinfected SCC.

Staphylococcus lugdunensis is an emerging pathogen in skin and soft tissue infections that was previously considered a commensal. The aim of this study was to elucidate the characteristics of skin infections by S. lugdunensis and its appropriate management, in a tertiary referral medical center. The clinical files, bacterial cultures and histopathology reports of all S. lugdunensis isolates from skin infections over a period of 8 years (September 2009-September 2017) were reviewed. S. lugdunensis was isolated from 29 patients with skin infections, aged 7-89 years (mean 33...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory dermatosis of the body folds, characterized by nodules, abscesses, sinus tracts and numerous comorbidities, significantly impairing patients quality of life (QoL).1-5 Among skin diseases, HS has the largest impact on QoL6 . Few specific instruments are available to assess, in a comprehensive, psychosocial perspective, the burden of HS7 , and no qualitative studies exploring the experience of HS patients and their relationship with the physician are currently available...

AIM: The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of antinuclear antibody (ANA) positivity in a cohort of patients with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), and to assess the frequency of seroconversion during treatment with tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α inhibitor therapy. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted through the Wound Etiology and Healing (WE-HEAL) Study. Immunofluorescence ANA testing was performed at baseline, and repeated when clinically indicated...

AIMS: To explore the potential of the skin microbiome as biomarker in six dermatological conditions i.e. atopic dermatitis (AD), acne vulgaris (AV), psoriasis vulgaris (PV), hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), seborrheic dermatitis/pityriasis capitis (SD/PC) and ulcus cruris (UC). METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines. Two investigators independently reviewed the included studies and ranked the suitability microbiome implementation for early phase clinical studies in an adapted GRADE method...

Background: Pediatric skin disorders can affect children's self-esteem, relationships with caregivers and peers, and performance in school and activities. Objective: This review describes common pediatric congenital and acquired dermatologic disorders and the impact that these disorders can have on children's self-esteem. Methods: A review of current, English-language literature was conducted with use of the PubMed database. Search terms included atopic dermatitis, acne, infantile hemangiomas, port wine stains, congenital melanocytic nevi, hidradenitis suppurativa, and self-esteem...

BACKGROUND: The long-term optimal dosing strategy for adalimumab in hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) was evaluated by pooling the results of the PIONEER phase 3 trials and an open-label extension (OLE) study. OBJECTIVE: To assess response and tolerability of long-term adalimumab in HS. METHODS: The durations of PIONEER I/II periods A, B, and OLE were 12, 24, and ≥ 52 weeks, respectively. Patients who entered the OLE and received adalimumab 40 mg every week continuously (ADAew) and responders plus partial responders (PRR) were evaluated...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder involving primarily the intertriginous skin of the axillary, inguinal, genital, and perianal areas of the body. It is characterized by recurrent inflamed nodules and abscesses, resulting in fistulae, fibrosis, and scarring. We present a case of HS refractory to local and systemic antibiotic therapy as well as anti-TNF and anti-IL12/23 that was successfully treated with secukinumab (anti-IL17A).

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful and debilitating, chronic inflammatory disease affecting the skin bearing apocrine glands. HS causes painful abscesses and nodules that can eventually progress to interconnected sinus tracts, scarring, and contractures of the skin. There is no definitive cure for HS, but multiple treatment strategies are available to patients. Treatments range from meticulous hygiene of the affected area to wide surgical excision of all involved tissue. This case study discusses the pathophysiology of the disease, severity staging, treatment options, and a patient case...
