Abstract

We praise Wortsman and colleagues along with Zarchi and Jemecfor their articles focused on the important role of ultrasound examination in identifying the subclinical lesions and optimizing the staging of anogenital hidradenitis suppurativa (HS). We would also like readers to consider the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in advanced cases of anogential HS. As of 2014, resorting to MRI for anogenital HS has been reported only by two works. Although probably underestimated, the contribution offered by this radiological tool to describing the extent, evolution or complications of this disease seems to be of great value. Our experience is in keeping with the two works previously reported.
