Proposed Definitions of Typical Lesions in Hidradenitis Suppurativa.

Dermatology 2020 9;236(5):431-438. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Private practice, Paris, France.

Background: Although not rare, hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is often under-recognized by physicians. The diagnosis of HS is clinical via the recognition of lesions typical of the disease, but universally accepted definitions of these latter are currently lacking, which means that certain severity scores employed for HS classification/management are used differently by different physicians. Our aim was to develop a set of descriptive definitions and associated images of HS lesions, in order to enable doctors to better recognize and evaluate the disease.

Methods: MEDLINE-available literature and dermatological textbooks on HS morphology were retrieved (January 1996 to February 2016). A preliminary set of definitions of HS typical lesions was created, including 10 terms. Each term was associated with a pathophysiological classification and an image. This preliminary set was shown during the 5th Conference of the European HS Foundation (EHSF). The physicians attending the event were invited to vote on each term and make comments via a voting sheet.

Results: A total of 81 physicians answered the questionnaire. Their agreement/disagreement rates and comments were used to obtain a revised set of definitions and images. Pathophysiological classifications were dropped.

Conclusion: A user-friendly set of definitions/images of HS typical lesions was proposed and will need to be validated by further studies. This set could ultimately serve as a tool to better recognize, score, and assess treatment efficacy.

Pilonidal sinus disease: an intergluteal localization of hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa: a cross-sectional study among 2465 patients.

Br J Dermatol 2019 12 6;181(6):1198-1206. Epub 2019 May 6.

Department of Dermatology, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), also referred to as acne inversa, is a debilitating skin disease characterized by inflammatory nodules, chronic abscesses and tunnels (fistulae and sinuses). The association with pilonidal sinus disease (PSD) is frequently reported but not well documented.

Objectives: To determine the prevalence and characteristics of inflammatory skin lesions located in the intergluteal fold (IGF) of patients with HS.

Methods: This was an international multicentre retrospective cross-sectional study based on data collection from a large cohort of patients with HS with and without histopathology. Results From a total of 2465 patients with HS included in the study, 661 (27%) reported lesions in the IGF. These patients were significantly more often smokers and had more severe HS. Of the 238 patients with an available clinical diagnosis, intergluteal-HS (IG-HS) was diagnosed in 52 patients (22%) and PSD was diagnosed in 186 patients (78%). IG-HS was associated with the localization of HS in the proximity of the IGF, including the buttocks, genitals and the anus. There was a possibility of misclassification bias in this study as a clinical/image-based diagnosis or histopathology of the IGF lesions was not always available.

Conclusions: The high prevalence of PSD suggests a strong link between both entities. Therefore, it may be useful to identify common pathophysiological mechanisms and develop common therapeutic strategies. What's already known about this topic? The occurrence of pilonidal sinus disease has not been clearly reported among patients with hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa. What does this study add? This is the first study that investigated the prevalence of pilonidal sinus disease among a large cohort of patients and identified the patient characteristics. Risk factors that might help to improve the management of patients were identified.
