Hidradenitis suppurativa or acne inversa is an inflammatory, chronic disease of the hair follicles located in specific areas of the skin surface (axillae, submammary, inguinal and intergluteal folds, pubis, genitalia and buttocks). The diagnosis and the management of this disease are usually made by the dermatologist. However, the frequent association of hidradenitis suppurativa or acne inversa with important systemic comorbidities needs the cooperation with a number of specialists. In particular, the cooperation with rheumatologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, microbiologists/infectivologists, psychologists/psychiatrics and plastic surgeons is often helpful or necessary.


KEY WORDS: Hidradenitis suppurativa - Dermatologists - Comorbidity
