Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease that is estimated to affect up to 4% of the population. Patients with HS are at increased risk for anxiety, depression, and suicide. Despite the prevalence of this disease, there is still underrecognition and often a delay in diagnosis. For successful treatment, a multimodal approach is recommended. Effective treatments include excision surgery, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor therapy, antibiotics, hormonal therapy, and metformin.
Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic debilitating dermatologic condition presenting with recurrent abscesses and interconnected sinus tracts. HS causes dramatic impairment of patients ’ quality of life and can lead to depression. The purpose of this study is to characterize the extent of depression in a population of patients with HS as measured by the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9).
Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is associated with psychiatric morbidity including suicidal behaviors. Biologics are effective in the treatment of HS. There are reports of psychiatric adverse events (AE) including suicidal behaviors in conjunction with the use of some biologics. This could be a confounding factor for the psychiatric morbidity encountered in HS.
Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) negatively impacts quality of life. Objective: To find how HS Hurley and Severity Assessment of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (SAHS) relate to scores on Dermatology Quality of Life Index (DQLI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Methods: Cross-sectional study run Oct. 2018-Feb. 2019. Eligibility: age 12+ and a clinical visit for HS.

AbstractHidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS) is one of the most debilitating inflammatory chronic skin diseases and it heavily impairs the emotional and relational life of the patients. Despite its clinical and epidemiological relevance, its psychological correlates are still largely unexplored. The aim of the present study was to investigate the psychological and emotional impact of HS, with a specific focus on psychiatric symptoms, particularly depression, suicidal ideation, self-esteem, anger, and some personality traits. Thirty eight patients diagnosed with HS (HS Group) were compared with a control group of 28 o...
IMPORTANCE: Previous studies suggest that depression and anxiety are common in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), more so than other dermatological conditions. Yet, to the authors' knowledge, no previous systematic review or meta-analysis has est...
This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluates 10 observational studies to assess the prevalence of depression and anxiety in patients with hidradenitis suppurativa and the odds of these psychiatric disorders in this population.
Conclusions: Children and adults with psoriasis had increased hospitalization for multiple MH disorders, which were associated with a considerable financial burden.Dermatology
