Background: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the folliculopilosebaceous units. It is characterized by recurrent inflammatory nodules that may progress to draining sinuses with scar formation. HS often results in severe pain, disability, and disfigurement. It appears that genes play a role in HS, with an estimated 40% of patients having an affected first-degree family member. Research on a few families documents an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance, but HS remains poorly understood without any large-scale genetic evaluations to date.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), a chronic cutaneous disease, can negatively affect work life. OBJECTIVE: This retrospective cohort study evaluates the indirect burden among employed HS patients in the US. METHODS: Newly diagnosed and general HS patients, employees (18-64 years) from a large claims database (1999Q1-2015Q1), were matched 1:5 to controls. Income growth and risk of leaving the workforce were assessed among the newly diagnosed HS/control cohorts in the 5-year study period; income, work loss days, and indirect costs (absenteeism and disability) were assessed among the gener...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewHidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, painful dermatologic disease characterized by recurrent inflammatory nodules and abscesses of intertriginous areas such as the axilla and groin. People with HS suffer from greater pain and associated psychological comorbidities, including depression, anxiety, disability, and impairments in quality of life (QoL), compared to those with other dermatologic conditions. Our review focuses on the occurrence of pain and these relationships.Recent FindingsThe existing literature indicates that acute and chronic pain, depression, anxiety, and disability all contri...

AbstractRheumatoid arthritis and spondyloarthritis are inflammatory joint disorders with an autoimmune pathogenesis and systemic involvement. The skin is one of the most frequently affected extraarticular sites with a number of manifestations or distinct diseases, including common conditions, such as rheumatoid nodules and psoriasis, and rare diseases like neutrophilic dermatoses. The latter are clinically characterised by polymorphic lesions, including pustules, bullae, abscesses, papules, nodules, plaques and ulcers, and histologically by neutrophil-rich inflammatory infiltrates. Inflammatory joint disorders and neutroph...
