BACKGROUND: Acne inversa (AI), also called hidradenitis suppurativa, is a chronic, inflammatory, recurrent skin disease of the hair follicle. Familial AI shows autosomal-dominant inheritance caused by mutations in the γ-secretase genes. This study was aimed to identify the specific mutations in the γ-secretase genes in two Chinese families with AI. METHODS: In this study, two Chinese families with AI were investigated. All the affected individuals in the two families mainly manifested with multiple comedones, pitted scars, and a few inflammatory nodules on their face, neck, trunk, axilla, buttocks, upper arms, and thighs...

It is unclear whether bacterial colonization in hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) comprises a primary cause, triggering factor or secondary phenomenon of the disease pathogenesis. Furthermore, the connection between certain bacterial species, the disease severity and its localization is unknown. Bacterial species were isolated from HS lesions to reveal a potential correlation with localization and disease severity. Ninety swab tests were prospectively obtained from 90 HS lesions of 50 consecutive patients...

Hidradenitis suppurativa, known as acne inversa, is a relapsing and chronic inflammatory skin disease affecting the skin folds. During the chronic course of the disease many local complications like fistulae to other tissues or systemic complications including anemia, secondary amyloidosis, lymphedema, nephrotic syndrome, artropathy may take place. Amyloid A amyloidosis is a rare complication of hidradenitis suppurativa, which has been described in a limited number of case reports. Herein, we present such a patient that had developed AA amyloidosis during the course of hidradenitis suppurativa...

Acne inversa (AI; also designated as hidradenitis suppurativa) is a chronic inflammatory disease with still unknown pathogenesis that affects the intertriginous skin of perianal, inguinal, and axillary sites. It leads to painful nodules, abscesses, and fistulas with malodorous secretion and is frequently associated with metabolic alterations. Here, we demonstrate that one of the most highly upregulated molecules in AI lesions is matrix metalloproteinase 8 (MMP8), an enzyme specialized in the degradation of extracellular matrix components and the HDL component apolipoprotein A-I...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), also known as acne inversa, is a painful, chronic, debilitating, inflammatory skin disease and has shown response to anti-TNF-α therapy. Efficacy and safety of the anti-TNF-α agent, adalimumab, was assessed in a post hoc analysis of women from the first 16 weeks of a phase 2 study of men and women with HS. METHODS: Patients with moderate-to-severe HS in at least 2 body areas, unresponsive or intolerant to oral antibiotics for treatment of their HS, and with no previous anti-TNF-a or systemic non-biologic treatment, were randomized 1:1:1 to 40 mg adalimumab-weekly or every-other-week, or placebo...

Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa is a diverse, enigmatic and distressful disease that has aroused growing interest in specialists from different disciplines. Both names describe its classical manifestations in the intertriginous regions and reflect the historical view of the disease definition, but cause confusions in the understanding of its pathogenesis and classification. In light of the advance in clinical, histopathological and pathophysiological findings, we propose the term "dissecting terminal hair folliculitis" (DTHF) to characterize its disease nature as folliculitis instead of acneiform disease or apocrine gland disorder...

INTRODUCTION: Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory, recurrent, debilitating skin disease of the hair follicle that usually 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. A mean disease incidence of 6.0 per 100,000 persons-years and a varying prevalence of 0.05-1% have been reported worldwide. AREAS COVERED: This manuscript summarizes the current evidence on chemistry, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, as well as clinical efficacy, safety and tolerability of the currently approved biologic drug adalimumab in the treatment of active moderate to severe HS in adults...

Hidradenitis suppurativa / acne inversa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory, debilitating skin disorder with a largely unknown etiology. However, many observations such as the typical onset of the disease after puberty, the female predominance, the pre-menstrual flare ups and the improvement during pregnancy suggest a contribution of endocrinological factors to the emergence of the disease. In addition, the reported efficacy of anti-androgen treatment on HS indicates a possible involvement of androgens in the pathogenesis...

Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) has a multifactorial pathogenesis, with many patients reporting positive family history. Nine β-defensin genes (among them DEFB4 and DEFB103, encoding for proinflammatory mediators human β-defensin-2 and human β-defensin-3, respectively) exist as a cluster (DEFB) affected by copy number (CN). We hypothesized that CNs are greater in patients with HS and that they are linked to genetic susceptibility. CNs of DEFB were studied in two independent patient cohorts: 163 patients from Greece and 98 from Germany...

Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by painful, recurrent nodules and abscesses that rupture and lead to sinus tracts and scarring. To date, an evidence-based therapeutic approach has not been the standard of care and this is likely due to the lack of evidence based treatment guidelines. The purpose of this study was to promote a holistic evidence-based approach which implemented Level of Evidence and Strength of Recommendation for the treatment of HS...

PURPOSE: Free flap transplantation to vascular reconstructions as arteriovenous (AV) loops has been established in centers as a feasible therapeutic option for defect reconstruction in the absence of proper recipient vessels, caused by oncologic resections, radiation, or trauma. We report our 10-year experience in free flap transplantation after vascular reconstruction with special emphasis on complication rate and postoperative mobility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty-seven patients (mean age: 60 years, range: 19-86) were included...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), also known as acne inversa, is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory disease affecting skin that bears apocrine glands. It is characterised by the presence of tender subcutaneous nodules that may rupture, resulting in deep dermal abscesses, fibrosis with dermal contractures and induration of the skin. The management of HS is a challenge for physicians as the pathogenesis is not clearly defined and prevents the use and development of directed therapies. Treatment options are oral agents (antibiotics, immunomodulators) and surgical excision...

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic inflammatory disease of apocrine gland-bearing skin. Although immunologic derangements, genetic predisposition, obesity, and smoking are likely important factors, the pathogenesis of the disease and the effect of available treatments on disease course have not been fully elucidated. In the absence of proper treatment, chronic inflammation results in diffuse scarring and a wide array of complications, including the development of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. This severe and chronic disease can have detrimental effects on self-esteem and quality of life...

INTRODUCTION: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, disabling, skin disorder. Because of renewed scientific interest in HS, different aspects of the condition, such as disease severity assessment, are being investigated and better defined. The aim of this study is to provide a novel tool for the assessment of disease severity. METHODS AND MATERIALS: An HS-tailored, composite, dynamic score, named the Acne Inversa Severity Index (AISI) was designed to include a physician-rated assessment that considers the type of lesions occurring and the affected body sites...
