ACHENBACH, RE et al. Mucinous adenocarcinoma in association with hidradenitis suppurativa. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2017, vol.98, n.4, pp.1-10. ISSN 1851-300X.

This is the first case in Argentina of Hidradenitis Suppurativa associated with a perianal mucinous carcinoma. Hidradenitis suppurativa is a common disorder, probably autoinflammatory in apocrine bearing skin. When the lesions are located in genital and perineal areas they may be associated with cancer, usually squamous cell carcinoma. We describe a case of a 46-year-woman who has a history  of  10  years of  hidradenitis  suppurativa  and  developed  a big  mucinous adenocarcinoma. Treatment is discussed tough the gold standard is the resection abdominoperineal. Our case was treated with a palliative criterion with a wide local surgery. Adalimumab is an accepted treatment for the chronic inflammation in the hidradenitis suppurativa; we do not believe this drug cause or worse the outcome of the malignant neoplasia.

Keywords : hidradenitis suppurativa; mucinous adenocarcinoma; anal canal y adalilumab.
