Pelayo Salas A., Perez Ruiz L., Adornetto R., Babic F., Fermiñán Rodriguez A., Del Carmen Garcés Guallart M., Ros Lopez S.
Verneuil's disease or perianal hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic suppurative disease with a tendency to fistulization and sclerosis, developing on the subcutaneous tissue, on apocrine glands. The perianal location is the most frequent, and the elective therapy in such case is surgery. A case of perianal Verneuil's disease of great size, invalidating for the patient, in which medical therapy failed, making necessary an agressive surgical treatment is reported. The therapeutical possibilities of this disease and its possible complications, are discussed.
