ABSTRACT
Acne inversa is a rare chronic and debilitating inflammatory skin disease. The authors report a case of a 45-year old male who presented with acne inversa in the inguinal, perineal, and scrotal areas. After unsatisfactory pharmacological treatment a wide surgical excision of the affected skin was performed in stages. On follow-up the patient presented with a very good cosmetic and functional result. A review of the most recent literature is also presented.

Mentions: Because of the unsatisfactory result of the previous treatment and advanced stage of penile and scrotal lesions, he was qualified for surgical treatment. The surgery was performed in stages. Procedures were done in the lithotomy position under spinal anesthesia. The scrotal operation consisted of two stage excision of diseased skin and subcutaneous tissue of the entire scrotum with a margin of 1 cm and with subsequent covering of the testes using transfer of the lipocutaneous flap to close the defects in scrotum (Fig. 1). The penile surgery began with almost total excision of the skin of the penis. Then a meshed split-thickness skin graft from the thigh was used to cover the defect (Fig. 2).
