Suppurative hidradenitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. A broad spectrum of surgical treatment from simple drainage to flap reconstructions has been defined. In order to prevent recurrences, complete excision of the skin and the subcutaneous tissue in the axillary and perianal region is required. Following wide excision of the diseased region, the defect is reconstructed by flaps or grafts. In the present study, treatment with wide excision and bilateral limberg flap reconstruction have been discussed with references to the current literature.
