Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of hair follicles which is associated with various comorbidities. In order further to clarify the associations between HS and psychiatric disorders, we conducted a nationwide retrospective study that included 4381 patients with HS and 39554 psoriasis and 43248 melanocytic nevi patients as controls. Patient data were obtained from the statutory Finnish Care Register for Health Care. The incidence of HS was 2.7/100,000 persons/year. At least one psychiatric diagnosis was found in 24...

Rheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis are inflammatory joint disorders with an autoimmune pathogenesis and systemic involvement. The skin is one of the most frequently affected extraarticular sites with a number of manifestations or distinct diseases, including common conditions, such as rheumatoid nodules and psoriasis, and rare diseases like neutrophilic dermatoses. The latter are clinically characterised by polymorphic lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers, and histologically by neutrophil-rich inflammatory infiltrates...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is rare in childhood, with only 2% of cases in patients younger than 11 years. It is a chronic, recurrent, debilitating condition for which no universally effective treatment has been developed. We present five cases of children with HS diagnosed between the ages of 6 and 11 years. METHODS: Patients were treated with oral finasteride 1 to 5 mg/day. All had entered puberty at the time of treatment initiation. All had normal laboratory results before starting treatment...

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic skin disorder characterized by recurrent inflammatory nodules, fistulas, abscesses, and scarring mainly in the intertriginous areas with terminal hair and apocrine glands. Hidradenitis suppurativa manifests usually after puberty, in the third life decade and persists for many years. The prevalence of the disease is estimated to be 0,5 % in the Czech Republic. Women are most often affected in the axillary and inguinal parts, while men in the perianal and gluteal areas. The exact pathogenesis is still unknown...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurrent and debilitating skin disease of the hair follicle that is accompanied by systemic inflammation. Treating HS is challenging, and therapeutic tools as diverse as topical and systemic antibiotics, biologics, intralesional steroids, surgical procedures or light and laser therapies are frequently needed. The combination of oral clindamycin and rifampicin (R+C) has been suggested as a possible treatment regimen (level of evidence III, strength of recommendation C)...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic and debilitating inflammatory skin disease that disproportionately affects women of childbearing age. Yet, little has been written about the impact of pregnancy on the natural history of HS. It has been postulated that apocrine-gland activity diminishes in pregnancy, accounting for symptom remission.

Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is recently attracting much attention and awareness, often because it is misdiagnosed for years, restricting the therapeutic options. Moreover, this pathology arises in areas such as the inguinal region, that may cause embarrassment in young patients. Wrong diagnosis and delay in appropriate treatments lead to an exacerbation of the symptoms and a progression of the disease, which at the last stage can only be managed through extensive surgical excisions, ablation and vaporization of nodules with CO2 laser systems or aggressive chemotherapies such as anti-TNF-alpha like adalimumab (Humira®-AbbVie Inc...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is an inflammatory skin disease causing painful inflammation and suppuration. It may occur in rare syndromes: follicular occlusion, Bazex-Dupré-Christol, Down's, KID, PAPASH, PASS, PASH, and SAPHO syndromes, as well as Dowling-Degos disease. An overview of syndromic HS may inform the search for etiological factors in HS. METHODS: Pubmed, Ovid, and Web of Science were systematically searched using "(hidradenitis OR acne invers*) AND (syndrome OR KID OR PASS OR PAPA OR PASH OR SAPHO OR bazex-dupre OR "dowling degos" OR triad OR tetrad)" and Cochrane Library using "hidradenitis OR acne invers*"...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful, inflammatory, debilitating skin disease with a chronic intermittent course. The central pathogenetic event seems to be the occlusion of the hair follicle. HS has a 1-year prevalence of about 1%. It typically presents after puberty with painful, deep-seated, inflamed lesions in the apocrine gland-bearing areas of the body: most commonly the axillae, inguinal, and anogenital regions. HS has a high negative impact on patients' quality of life even in patients with only limited disease burden, and the diagnosis of HS is often made with a long diagnostic delay...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa is a skin disease of recurrent episodes of inflammatory nodules, abscesses, and scarring of the intertriginous regions, e.g. the axillae and groin. A dysregulated immune response to one or more unknown antigens in hidradenitis suppurativa has been suggested. One hypothetical element of this dysregulation may be the functionality of the cytokines. This study examines the serum level of anticytokine autoantibodies for interleukin (IL)-1α, IL-6, IL-10, IL-17A, IL-17E, IL-17F, and interferon-α...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) has been linked to Down syndrome (DS). OBJECTIVE: To determine whether Down syndrome patients have a higher prevalence of HS, and whether diagnosis of HS occurs at an earlier age. METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis in a population sample of 11,936 DS patients and 16,813,290 non-DS patients. The primary outcome was diagnosis of HS. SNOMED-CT terms were used to identify patients with DS and HS. We used logistic regression models and significant interaction terms to evaluate the relationship between DS and HS...

INTRODUCTION: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a painful chronic inflammatory disease with a prevalence between 1 and 4% of general population. The pathogenesis of HS long eluded scientists, but growing evidence suggests that it is a consequence of inflammatory dysregulation. FINDINGS: Recent studies suggest that dysregulated immune response to skin flora and overexpression of inflammatory cytokines leads to chronic skin inflammation seen in HS. Macrophages are the most numerous inflammatory cells found in HS infiltrates and release numerous pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-23, and IL-1β and TNF-α, exacerbating the inflammation and contributing to the pathogenesis of HS...

An inappropriate immunologic response to an unknown antigen has been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). Studies have identified elevated levels of several proinflammatory cytokines, including IL-17A and TNF-α, nominating these as possible therapeutic targets.(1) Secukinumab is an Il-17A monoclonal antibody, which binds to Il-17A and inhibits the cytokine interaction with the Il-17 receptors, inhibiting the inflammatory cascade. Here we report on a case of a 47-year-old man, with Hurley Stage III lesions at the neck, axillae, breasts, genital skin and buttocks, who had experienced only temporary benefit from different medical treatments over the years...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory and debilitating disease of hair follicles with 1-4% prevalence and high morbidity. There is a dearth of information on the pathogenesis and immune dysregulation underlying HS therefore we carried out a detailed analysis of skin infiltrating T cells. Cells isolated from skin biopsies and blood from HS patients and healthy controls were analysed by 16-parameter flow cytometry to provide detailed profiles of CD4 T cell subsets. We observed substantial infiltration of inflammatory T cells with a striking Th17-skewed cytokine profile in HS skin, these cells expressed the Th17 lineage marker CD161 and IL-17, as well as other pro-inflammatory cytokines GM-CSF, IL-22, IFN-γ, and TNF...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a disease characterized by the development of painful, deep-seeded nodules and abscesses. Treatment guidelines include a combination of lifestyle, surgical, and medical interventions. Isotretinoin has not been included in the treatment guidelines due to the limited number of studies and conflicting reports of efficacy. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical response to isotretinoin in HS patients and to determine whether there is a particular patient population that may benefit more from this treatment...
