Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Chronic inflammatory diseases other than hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) have been associated with prothrombotic/hypercoagulable status.

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate a possible association between the chronic inflammatory skin disease HS and prothrombotic/hypercoagulable state.

METHODS:

We performed a hospital- and population-based cross-sectional study investigating the coagulation status (thrombocytes, mean platelet volume [MPV], international normalized ratio [INR] and activated partial thromboplastin time [APTT]).

RESULTS:

32 hospital HS subjects, 430 population HS subjects and 20,780 population non-HS control subjects were identified. The adjusted analyses showed no differences in the levels of thrombocytes, MPV, INR or APTT between the HS groups (hospital HS group, population HS group) when compared to controls (p = 0.089, p = 0.3078; p = 0.5499, p = 0.0659; p = 0.0932; p = 0.3432).

CONCLUSION:

We did not find an association between HS and prothrombotic/hypercoagulable status. Thus, thrombocytes may not be activated in HS. Furthermore, INR may not be affected in HS, suggesting that intrinsic and vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors appear unaffected.
