Hidradenitis Suppurativa: A Diagnostic Atlas provides a unique visual aid to the diagnosis of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS), also known as "acne inversa." The book covers the epidemiology and pathogenesis of the disease, its typical presentation, differences in manifestations of cutaneous versus systemic instances, and considerations for clinical and histopathological differential diagnosis. Guidance is also provided for the classification of disease severity and for managing the impact of HS on the patient's quality of life.

The book is packed with high-quality, full-color clinical images for each of the most common HS diagnostic imaging techniques, such as videodermatoscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. As a clinical atlas, it helps dermatologists with differential diagnoses and correct assessments of disease severity, as well as possible complications of the condition. The book:

  • Is highly focused on acne inversa, which can have a debilitating impact on quality of life
  • Includes over 200 outstanding diagnostic clinical images
  • Covers all imaging modalities used in the diagnosis and management of Hidradenitis Suppurativa

This book is a key resource for dermatologists, dermatopathologists, and dermatology nurses working with patients with HS.
