Summary of "Hidradenitis suppurativa and vasculitis: A case series and literature review of a rare association."

Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic inflammatory skin disease with dysregulation of the immune system. Its pathophysiology is not clear, and it has been reported in association with various inflammatory disorders such as pyoderma gangrenosum, arthritis, familial Mediterranean fever and inflammatory bowel diseases. However, the co-existence of HS and vasculitis is exceptional and has not been investigated. We report on five patients with vasculitis that are followed in our centers: one with Takayasu's arteritis, three with granulomatosis with polyangiitis and one with Behcet's disease and compare them with those previously reported in the literature. A case series and literature review with key words of "vasculitis," "hidradenitis suppurativa," and "acne inversa" found only one previous report of hidradenitis suppurativa and cutaneous vasculitis and two with Behcet's disease. Whereas the association of pyoderma gangrenosum and vasculitis is well-known, that with hidradenitis suppurativa is rarer. There may be some pathogenic continuum between hidradenitis suppurativa, pyoderma gangrenosum and vasculitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.

The inflammation of a sweat gland (usually of the apocrine type). The condition can be idiopathic or occur as a result of or in association with another underlying condition. Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis is a relatively rare variant that has been reported in patients undergoing chemotherapy, usually for non-Hodgkin lymphomas or leukemic conditions.

A chronic suppurative and cicatricial disease of the apocrine glands occurring chiefly in the axillae in women and in the groin and anal regions in men. It is characterized by poral occlusion with secondary bacterial infection, evolving into abscesses which eventually rupture. As the disease becomes chronic, ulcers appear, sinus tracts enlarge, fistulas develop, and fibrosis and scarring become evident.

A group of elements that include SCANDIUM; YTTRIUM; and the LANTHANOID SERIES ELEMENTS. Historically, the rare earth metals got their name from the fact that they were never found in their pure elemental form, but as an oxide. In addition they were very difficult to purify. They are not truly rare and comprise about 25% of the metals in the earth's crust.
