Datamonitor Healthcare I&I: Hidradenitis Suppurativa Market Spotlight

September 07, 2020

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), also known as acne inversa in European regions, is a chronic inflammatory condition of the skin. It primarily affects apocrine gland-rich regions of the body and manifests as painful nodules, sinus tracts, abscesses, and scarring. Axillary and inguinal involvement are more prevalent in females, while peri-anal localizations are common in males. The onset of HS is generally after puberty; however, it is most common in individuals during their 30s, and may persist into old age. The symptoms of HS range from mild to severe. It causes a mixture of blackheads, red boil-like lumps, scarring, channels, and cysts in the skin, which leak pus. HS has a significant impact on the quality of life of patients, deeply affecting work, social, and psychological aspects.
