    Hidradenitis Suppurativa and Crohn's Disease: A Case Series.
    Ir Med J 2017 Aug 12;110(7):618. Epub 2017 Aug 12.
    Department of Dermatology, The Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Dublin.
    Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is characterized by chronic recurrent abscesses, nodules and draining sinus tracts with scar formation. Cutaneous Crohn's Disease (CD) may also present similarly. We wished to identify and describe an Irish cohort with combined HS and CD, with a view to a better recognition of clinical manifestations and understanding of the pathophysiology underlying these two overlapping conditions.

    Multiple Hypermetabolic Subcutaneous Lesions From Hidradenitis Suppurativa Mimicking Metastases on 18F-FDG PET/CT.
    Clin Nucl Med 2017 Nov 22. Epub 2017 Nov 22.
    Hidradenitis suppurativa is an inflammatory disease associated with subcutaneous nodules/abscesses that occur commonly in the axillary, inguinal, and perineal regions. We describe a case of a 64-year-old man presenting for F-FDG PET/CT for staging of a left vocal cord squamous cell carcinoma. The scan showed uptake in the left vocal cord malignancy and multiple hypermetabolic subcutaneous foci in the right axilla, right buttocks, and scalp in known locations of skin lesions related to hidradenitis suppurativa.

    Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis With Clinical and Histologic Features of Hidradenitis Suppurativa: Brief Report and Review.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2017 Sep 11. Epub 2017 Sep 11.
    Department of Dermatology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL.
    Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an uncommon histiocytic disorder in adults. Clinically, this rare entity can mimic other dermatologic conditions, including hidradenitis suppurativa. A case of LCH is reported with clinical and histologic features of hidradenitis suppurativa, along with a review of these unusual findings. Read More

    A phenotype combining hidradenitis suppurativa with Dowling-Degos disease caused by a founder mutation in PSENEN.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 Sep 18. Epub 2017 Sep 18.
    Department of Dermatology, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel.
    Dowling-Degos disease, featuring reticulate pigmentation, and familial hidradenitis suppurativa share many clinical features including autosomal dominant inheritance, flexural location and follicular defects. The co-existence of the two disorders was recently found to result from mutations in PSENEN, encoding protein presenilin enhancer gamma-secretase subunit. Here we report 4 additional families of Jewish Ashkenazi origin who presented with clinical features characteristic of both disorders. Read More

    Uncovering burden disparity: A comparative analysis of the impact of moderate-to-severe psoriasis and hidradenitis suppurativa.
