Resumen:
Background and objectives: Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the follicular unit characterized by recurrent, painful, skin lesions including inflammatory nodules, abscesses, tunnels, and mutilating scarring. Intralesional corticosteroids injection (ICI) for HS has received little attention in the scientific literature. We evaluate the clinical response of ICI in acute and chronic HS lesions and aim to identify new applications of ultrasound-assisted procedures in HS management. Patients and methods: An observational, retrospective, multicenter study of HS patients treated with ICI was conducted from January 1 to August 1, 2015. We collected 98 HS patients. A total of 135 individual lesions were infiltrated, including non-inflammatory nodules, inflammatory nodules abscesses and fistulous tracts. Results: Complete response was reached in 95 lesions (70.37%), 34 showed partial response (25.19%) and 6 (4.44%) were non-response. A total of 105 individual lesions underwent sonographic scan before ICI. Conclusion: Clinical experience supported the use of ICI for individual lesions. Our results showed that ICI is a useful treatment to control in acute and recalcitrant HS lesions. Response rates improve significantly if lesions are previously evaluated with HFUS.
