Abstract/OtherAbstract:
HS is a chronic suppurative skin condition characterized by recurrent inflammatory nodules, cysts, abscesses and sinus tracts in apocrine gland-bearing sites. The clinical presentation is highly variable both in terms of the cutaneous features, distribution, presence of complications (e.g. fistula formation, lymphoedema) extra-cutaneous features (arthritis, interstitial keratitis(1) ) and associated constitutional symptoms(fever, malaise). Despite this apparent phenotypic heterogeneity it is only recently that attempts have been made to classify the disease. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
