Severe inverted acne associated with pyoderma gangrenosum and complicated by sepsis
Advances in Dermatology and Allergology, 08/09/2012
Bergler–Czop B et al. – Acne inversa is a chronic or relapsing scarring disease, manifested by recurrent formation of abscesses, fistulating sinus and scarring of the axillae, groins and perineum occurring predominantly in women, with onset at puberty. The association with Crohn disease, psoriasis and pyoderma gangrenosum, as well as the seronegative arthropathies, suggests common immunopathogenesis. All patients required multiple therapeutic agents because their diseases were often poorly responsive to standard therapies.
