Pilonidal disease.

Zimmerman, Karl M.D.

Collapse Box


Conclusion and Summary: Pilonidal disease is probably an acquired condition. Surgical opening of the entire process is necessary for cure. A simple surgical unroofing is all that is necessary at operation. The postoperative treatment and observation is important to prevent the same conditions that caused the disorder in the first place from causing a recurrence.
