Acne inversa

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic disease of a type of sweat gland. It can occur in one or multiple areas of your body. HS usually develops in your armpits, groin, and anal area. It causes long-term skin inflammation and can be painful. . Symptoms include : -Blackheads and red, tender bumps, called abscesses. The abscesses get bigger, break open, and leak pus. -Tunnels that form under the skin between abscesses. -Scarring. No one knows what causes HS. It is more common in women, African Americans, and people who have had acne. It usually starts after the teenage years. Treatments include antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medicines, and sometimes surgery. Losing weight and wearing loose clothing can help, too. .  [from MedlinePlus]

Hidradenitis suppurativa, familial

Acne inversa is a chronic relapsing inflammatory skin disease characterized by recurrent draining sinuses and abscesses, predominantly in skin folds that carry terminal hairs and apocrine glands. Healing occurs with substantial scarring. The prevalence of acne inversa has been estimated at 1 in 100 to 1 in 600. The female-to-male ratio in most published series is between 2:1 and 5:1 (Jansen et al., 2001). Jansen et al. (2001) provided a detailed history and review of the disorder. Genetic Heterogeneity of Familial Acne Inversa Familial acne inversa-2 (ACNINV2; 613736) is caused by haploinsufficiency for the PSENEN gene (607632) on chromosome 19q13.1. Familial acne inversa-3 (ACNINV3; 613737) is caused by haploinsufficiency for the PSEN1 gene (104311) on chromosome 14q24.3, making this disorder allelic to early-onset Alzheimer disease (607822). [from OMIM]
