BACKGROUND: A paucity of knowledge exists regarding the use of ertapenem in hidradenitis suppurativa. Our retrospective chart review and telephone interview aims to investigate the utility of intravenous ertapenem in severe, refractory hidradenitis suppurativa. METHODS: This retrospective chart review and telephone interview included patients with severe, refractory hidradenitis suppurativa treated with intravenous ertapenem between March 2013 and December 2016...

INTRODUCTION: Cigarette smoking is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and has a deleterious effect on dermatological conditions, such as skin cancers, hidradenitis suppurativa and psoriasis. The study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a pharmacist-led smoking cessation clinic in reducing cigarette smoking at a tertiary referral dermatology centre. We describe the impact of this clinic to provide guidance on how such a model could be further improved and implemented more widely...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical technique which delivers oxygen at ambient pressures to increase the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood and oxygen distribution to tissues. There are several beneficial properties of HBOT concomitant with elevated oxygen distribution in tissue including anti-inflammation, angiogenesis through vascular endothelial growth factor proliferation, augmented fibroblast activity through fibroblast growth factor proliferation, tissue and wound repair, enhancement of lymphocyte and macrophage activity, increased male testosterone secretion, and bactericidal activity...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory, and recurrent skin disease. Surgical excision of wounds appears to be the only curative treatment for the prevention of recurrence of moderate to severe stages. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a standard reference examination for the detection of HS peri-anal inflammatory fistula. In this case study, the use of real-time medical infrared thermography, in combination with MRI as appropriate imaging, is proposed. The aim is to assist surgeons in the pre- and peri-surgical management of severe perianal hidradenitis suppurativa with the intent to ensure that all diseased lesions were removed during surgery and therefore to limit recurrence...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) in Asia is unknown. The associations between HS and other autoimmune disorders have rarely been reported. OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the prevalence of and diseases associated with HS using the National Health Insurance (NHI) database. METHODS: We examined Korean NHI claim database data from 2007 to 2016. We enrolled all patients with HS and age- and sex-matched control subjects without HS...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is one of the most distressing conditions observed in dermatology and has a substantial negative effect on the quality of life of affected persons. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate different treatment strategies in patients with HS. METHODS: In a retrospective cohort, all patients with HS (July 2015 to March 2017) were reviewed. Collected data consisted of patients' demographics, clinical characteristics, psychosocial situation, and previous and current treatments...

There is a lack of data evaluating the influence of hidradenitis suppurativa-related subjective symptoms on sleep quality. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of itch and pain on sleep quality in 108 patients with hidradenitis suppurativa compared with 50 controls. The Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were used to evaluate a spectrum of sleep disturbances. Mean ± standard deviation AIS and PSQI scores among patients with hidradenitis suppurativa vs. controls were assessed as 5...

BACKGROUND: Spondyloarthritis (SpA), a chronic inflammatory, rheumatic disease, and hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), a chronic, debilitating, inflammatory skin disease, share several clinical and pathophysiological features, such as the association with inflammatory bowel disease and elevated cytokine levels IL-17 and TNF-α. Recently, SpA was reported to be more prevalent (2.3-28.2%) in patients with HS than in the general population. Conversely, the prevalence of HS in SpA is not exactly known...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) influences patients' lives in many ways. The most troublesome symptom of HS is chronic pain, of mild-to-moderate intensity, which is reported by almost all patients. With reference to psychosocial evaluation, HS appears to be a highly debilitating disease. The major factors influencing patients' well-being are disease severity, the number of flares or affected skin areas, and the lesion location. The mean Dermatology Life Quality Index scores of 8·3-12·7 points obtained among patients with HS are typical for severe dermatoses, which have a large impact on patients' quality of life (QoL)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Severe infection, inadequate food intake, and pressure ulcers in patients with type 2 diabetes can result in malnutrition. We describe a case in which rehabilitation nutrition was effective for treat-ing a pressure ulcer in a malnourished patient with type 2 diabetes.

According to results of a recent literature search performed by the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) Task Forces (TF) on Quality of Life and Patient Oriented Outcomes (QoL and PO) and Acne, Rosacea and Hidradenitis Suppurativa (ARHS) most of publications where health-related (HR) QoL of acne patients was studied were clinical trials. Members of the EADV TF on QoL and PO decided to detect which acne treatment has the best influence on HRQoL of acne patients. A new literature search was organized to find publications on acne treatment where the HRQoL of patients was assessed as an outcome measure...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, highly debilitating disease. Few questionnaires have been developed to identify potential HS cases based on simple questions. A visual representation may help in characterizing these lesions. OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate a visually assisted questionnaire for HS detection. METHODS: This was an observational diagnostic study on a series of patients with a first diagnosis of HS and a corresponding series of age and gender-matched controls consecutively observed in two Italian centers...

Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS/AI) is a type of chronic suppurative inflammatory reaction of the hair follicles characterized by recurrent dermal abscesses, sinus tracts and scars. So far, there has not been any prospective study proving the efficacy and safety of photodynamic therapy for the disease. In this report, one case of HS/AI achieved resolution of skin lesions, ulcer healing and disappearance of symptoms after nine treatments with 5-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT).

BACKGROUND: Although insulated intralesional radiofrequency ablation (IL-RFA) is being increasingly used in other specialties, not much information on its safety and efficacy in dermatology is available. OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience with insulated IL-RFA for various dermatological conditions. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of the patients who underwent IL-RFA in the past 3 years. Our technique involved creating a small window in the proximal end of plastic sheath of an intravenous cannula using a surgical blade, and then touching the RF probe to the cannula through the window to deliver the electric current...

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic, disabling, suppurative disease characterized by deep tender subcutaneous nodules; complicated by fibrosis and extensive sinuses affecting primarily the apocrine gland bearing areas. It affects all races in early 20s with greater prevalence seen in women (3 to 5:1). The estimated disease prevalence is 1 - 4 %. The disease is speculated to be caused by follicular structural abnormalities with associated risk factors as smoking, obesity, positive family history and shaving...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The association between hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and multiple comorbidities has been widely investigated but data about the coexistence of Down syndrome (DS) are scarce. We sought to evaluate the prevalence of DS among a population of HS patients and assess their clinical features. METHODS: We collected demographic and clinical data of patients affected with HS referred to three Italian outpatient dermatology clinics. RESULTS: A total of 257 HS patients were enrolled, 62% females and 38% males (mean age [±SD]: 23...
