Management of hidradenitis suppurativa: experience from a Singaporean dermatologic institute


ECE Choi 蔡慈恩 and NS Chandran 素綠


Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the follicular epithelium that runs a chronic course and can be difficult to treat. We studied 58 patients with HS treated at the National University Hospital, Singapore over a 13 year period, and described the treatment regimes used. We looked at the response to treatment and the second and third-line agents used in our institute. We describe the benefits and limitations of our care, and discuss possibilities and avenues for improvement.
