The Skin on Fire

The words of Dr Argenziano saying that ”dermatologists are beginning to move away from clinico-pathological diagnosis to clinico-imaging diagnosis” still sound in the air of the current EADV ( European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology) meeting in Copenhagen (@EADVcop press-release). Meanwhile, in the same meeting the launch of the social media campaign called “Voices of Hidradenitis” is taking place, in order to decrease the taboo of this terrible dermatologic disease that produces recurrent nodules and abscesses in the intertriginous regions (#EADVcop) usually in young and middle age people. This inflammatory disease of the skin deeply affects the quality of life and self-esteem of individuals. Ultrasound can support the diagnosis and staging of Hidradenitis Suppurativa and can show subclinical information that is not possible to deduct from the physical examination. In the discussion forum you can find a  sonographic image of  Hidradenitis Suppurativa. Take a look!
