These recommendations for the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), also known as Verneuil disease, have been elaborated by the Centre de Preuves en Dermatologie (Centre of Evidence of Dermatology) to provide medical professionals treating patients suffering from this disease with decision-making tools. The goal is to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, for which few factual data are available. Recommendations will be updated in the coming years, according to new scientific data.
