BACKGROUND: We performed a retrospective review of treatment effects with FDA-approved Polidocanol endovenous microfoam (PEM, Varithena® 1%) on venous symptomology in ten (N=10) C3-C6 patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and concomitant complex disease/pathology that limited the use of endothermal ablation (ETA). METHODS: Pathology included: risk of bruising or bleeding, severe lipodermatosclerosis (LDS), Hydradenitis Suppurativa, chronic fibrosis of the vein from prior superficial thrombosis, risk for nerve injury and failed prior ETA...

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) could be associated with several extra-intestinal manifestations (EIMs) involving musculoskeletal, hepatopancreatobiliary, ocular, renal, and pulmonary systems, as well as the skin. In the last years, hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is acquiring an increasing interest. IBD, especially Crohn's disease (CD), is among the most reported associated diseases in HS patients. The aim of this paper is to give a brief overview of data showing a possible epidemiologic and pathogenetic association between IBD and HS...

Last years, the development of biological drugs substantially improved the outcome of many inflammatory diseases. In dermatology, this kind of therapy is essentially prescribed for the treatment of psoriasis, and include the anti-TNF, anti-IL-12/IL-23 and anti-IL-17. Despite these treatments have not yet been approved, they seemed to be efficient for the treatment of many other inflammatory dermatosis, like granulomatous diseases, neutrophilic diseases, hydradenitis suppurativa or pityriasis rubra pilaris.

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to review needle aspiration of breast abscesses and identify factors associated with treatment by aspiration alone versus aspiration with surgical incision and drainage (I/D). METHODS: This Institutional Review Board-approved, retrospective review of the breast ultrasound database from 2008 to 2010 identified 40 patients (41 abscesses) who underwent aspiration, with or without I/D. Demographics, imaging, number of aspirations, and microbiology were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Electronic claims and medical record databases are important sources of information for medical research. However, potential sources of error and bias, including inaccurate diagnoses, incomplete data, incorrect data entry and misclassification bias, necessitate studies that assess the validity of these databases. OBJECTIVES: To assess the validity of the diagnostic code for hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), which is an increasingly studied disease. METHODS: In this retrospective study, the medical records of 1168 patients in the Massachusetts General Hospital database who had received at least two International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision 705·83 codes were manually screened...

A 69-year-old male patient underwent excision of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) affecting both gluteal areas and the perineum. The perineal specimen contained a 1-cm superficially invasive, well-differentiated keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma. The patient was free of recurrence 1 year after surgery. A 66-year-old male patient was diagnosed with massive perineal HS more than 40 years previously. More than 30 abscesses and suppurative sinus tracts were surgically treated over the years. He eventually died of unresectable pelvic squamous carcinoma...

Cetuximab is an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor used in metastatic colorectal cancer, and head and neck cancers. Several cutaneous side effects due to cetuximab such as acne-like rash, pruritus, dry skin, desquamation, hypertrichosis, and paronychia have been reported so far. A 59-year-old male patient with metastatic colon cancer referred to our outpatient clinic for his lesions on the dorsal surfaces of his hands and wrists, and on thighs developing after the chemotherapy. He was diagnosed as neutrophilic eccrine hydradenitis related to cetuximab in the light of clinical and histopathological findings...

AIM: Assessment of therapeutic effect and immunologic parameters during use of Immunovac vaccine for complex treatment of chronic forms of pyoderma. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-five patients with different clinical forms of chronic pyoderma (furunculosis, hydradenitis, chronic ulcerative and ulcerative-vegetans pyoderma, folliculitis, impetigo etc.) were studied. Fifty-nine patients received immunotherapy with Immunovac vaccine together with basic therapy and 36 patients comprised control group treated only with basic therapy...

Apocrine carcinoma is a rare sweat gland neoplasm with very few cases reported in the published literature. We report a case of primary axillary apocrine carcinoma with later recurrences in both axillae. A 55-year-old man was clinically diagnosed with hydradenitis suppurativa in the right axilla, and after excision of lesion, histology showed metastatic adenocarcinoma of probable breast origin. However, no primary focus was found after extensive work-up except for metastatic lymph nodes in the ipsilateral axilla treated with axillary clearance...

Primary breast cancer of ectopic axillary breast tissue is almost never diagnosed preoperatively. When not accompanied by nipple-areolar complex, the mass is often believed to be a lipoma, an enlarged lymph node, or a skin lesion such as a sebaceous cyst or hydradenitis suppurativa. When an axillary mass is found, a percutaneous needle biopsy is mandatory to rule out the diagnosis of cancer in ectopic breast tissue. We describe the sonographic findings of a case of ductal carcinoma in axillary ectopic breast tissue...

Verneuil's disease or perianal hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic suppurative disease with a tendency to fistulization and sclerosis, developing on the subcutaneous tissue, on apocrine glands. The perianal location is the most frequent, and the elective therapy in such case is surgery. A case of perianal Verneuil's disease of great size, invalidating for the patient, in which medical therapy failed, making necessary an aggressive surgical treatment is reported. The therapeutical possibilities of this disease and its possible complications, are discussed...
