Course: Hidradenitis Suppurativa Diagnosis and Pathogenesis
Hidradenitis Suppurativa Diagnosis and Pathogenesis
Joslyn Kirby, MD, MS MEd

In this session we'll be discussing how to recognize HS, especially when it's early (or when it's a good day!). The pathophysiology of HS has been somewhat controversial over the past several decades. What components of the immune system are involved? What structures of the skin are involved? We'll give you the latest insights into these questions and how to help your patients understand it!
