Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a common (though rarely diagnosed) disease affecting the apocrine glands. It is chronic in nature and mainly found in areas rich in apocrine glands like axillae, groins, under the breast, buttocks and the gluteal region. The main features of HS are multiple abscesses, sinus tracts, wet oozing lesions and secondary infections. The disease is chronic in nature and negatively affects the quality of life of patients.
HS disorder should be put in mind when a patient has intertrigenous lesions. It could be differential diagnosis, along with the fungal, viral and other bacterial infections.
