AbstractHidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurrent skin inflammatory disease associated with a variety of comorbidities, like reduced quality of life, metabolic syndrome, sexual dysfunction, working disability, axial spondyloarthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and anxiety. Like psoriasis, HS patients have been found to have higher risk of cardiovascular death and suicide risk. Clinicians should be informed about these comorbidities so that appropriate screening is implemented. All this evidence suggests that for such a chronic, multi-comorbid disease, the use of validated outcomes to assess severi...
