Axillary Hidradenitis

Axillary Hidradenitis Abstract The magnitude of the social, economic, and medical problems confronting patients with chronic suppurative axillary hidradenitis is not generally recognized. Nonoperative treatment is disappointing. Total excision of all apocrine-bearing axillary tissue with primary closure is the treatment of choice. Operative treatment can be safely accomplished even when draining sinuses are present. Twenty-six patients representing 47 operated axillae are presented. References 1.
