A better and broader understanding of this disease may potentially reduce the diagnostic delay. Read More

    Hidradenitis suppurativa: from pathogenesis to diagnosis and treatment.
    Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2017 19;10:105-115. Epub 2017 Apr 19.
    Section of Dermatology, Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy.
    Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease primarily affecting apocrine gland-rich areas of the body and presenting with painful nodules, abscesses, sinus tracts, and scarring. HS is a multifactorial disease in which genetic and environmental factors play a key role. The primary defect in HS pathophysiology involves follicular occlusion of the folliculopilosebaceous unit, followed by follicular rupture, and immune responses (perifollicular lympho-histiocytic inflammation), finally leading to the development of clinical HS lesions.

    Hidradenitis suppurativa in Crohn's disease during adalimumab therapy: a paradox?
    Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2017 Mar;26(1):21-23
    Dermatology Unit, Department of Clinical and Molecular Sciences, Polytechnic Marche University, Ancona, Italy.
    A sporadic association between hidradenitis suppurativa and other diseases is reported in the literature, but few authors have described the association with Crohn's disease. Adalimumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody targeted at tumor necrosis factor alpha approved for the treatment of Crohn's disease and, recently, for active moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa in adult patients that do not respond adequately to systemic conventional treatment. We report an unusual case of a paradoxical effect of adalimumab in the onset of hidradenitis suppurativa in a 40-year-old woman during the treatment of Crohn's disease. Read More

    Autoinflammatory syndromes associated with hidradenitis suppurativa and/or acne.
    Int J Dermatol 2017 Mar 27. Epub 2017 Mar 27.
    Department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark.
    Autoinflammatory syndromes associated with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and/or acne are rare but potentially debilitating disorders if not diagnosed and treated correctly. They share a common pathogenesis involving a dysregulated innate immune system with abnormal interleukin (IL)-1 signaling leading to sterile neutrophilic inflammation. The clinical features are recurrent episodes of fever, painful arthritis, and skin lesions consistent with HS, acne, and pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) accompanied by elevated systemic inflammatory markers in blood.
