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.

Figure 0003: Result after 2 years of follow-up.

Mentions: The inflammatory process in the genital organs has not recurred (Fig. 3). On follow-up the patient presented with a very good cosmetic and functional result that made it possible to resume a normal sexual lifestyle. His subjective score of quality of life increased nearly four times from 2.1 to 8.3 in VAS. Unfortunately, the patient still has some lesions in the armpits requiring periodic antibiotic therapy.
