Sir,

The July–December 2018 issue of the Journal of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery described an uncommon case of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) involving unusual sites.[1] Onset of HS in atypical sites can be associated with underlying impaired immune status, including human immunodeficiency virus infection.[2] When unusual patterns of inflammatory or infectious disease are observed, considering the potential for underlying immunosuppression might be considered.
