Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book gives a good historical overview on HS emphasizing on the many confusing names the disease has been given since its first description more than a hundred years ago and the century long discussion of the involvement of apocrine glands in the pathology of the disease. … In conclusion, this book is well structured, easy to read and are a great source of information … . recommendable for all physicians with more than a superficial interest in HS." (Elisabeth Eiling, Archives of Dermatological research, Vol. 299, 2007)
