A fatal case of carcinoma arising from a pilonidal sinus tract. (1/51)

We report a male patient with carcinoma arising on the basis of neglected sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease. Following initial operation, performed without suspicion of malignancy, histology demonstrated cellular atypia and an increased mitotic rate. A second, wider tissue excision was recommended but the patient declined further surgery. Two years later, he presented with fungating carcinoma involving the rectum but again declined surgery. This rare case demonstrates that the presence of carcinoma should be suspected in long-standing, although innocent-looking, pilonidal sinus disease. In the circumstance of uncertain histologic diagnosis, more generous surgical sampling is required. Every effort must be made to overcome patient's reluctance to accept a second, possibly life-saving procedure.  (+info)

Early sonographic detection of a 'human tail': a case report. (2/51)

We report on a newborn in whom an echogenic protrusion arising in the caudal region was detected at 12 weeks' gestation. Subsequent ultrasound examinations at weeks 15 and 22 failed to demonstrate this finding. After birth, the infant was found to have a pilonidal sinus. The pilonidal sinus may represent a remnant of the embryonic appendage ('human tail') that usually disappears by the end of the 8th week of gestation. This case might support the theory of congenital pilonidal sinus origin.  (+info)

Laser depilation of the natal cleft--an aid to healing the pilonidal sinus. (3/51)

BACKGROUND: Pilonidal disease is common. Excessive hair growth in the natal cleft is thought to be a factor in initiating these sinuses. It is chronic and intermittent in nature and treatment can be difficult. Hair removal by shaving or use of creams is often advised as a compliment to surgical treatments. However, access to the natal cleft can be difficult. Laser removal of hair in the natal cleft is considered as an aid to healing the pilonidal sinus. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Over a 5-year period, 14 patients with recurrent pilonidal disease were treated in our unit with laser depilation. They were all contacted by postal questionnaire, and those with ongoing disease were asked to return to the clinic for evaluation and possible further treatment. RESULTS: All patients returned the postal questionnaire. Of the 14 patients, 4 had on-going disease and received further depilation with the Alexandrite laser. All are now healed with no reported complications. All patients found the procedure painful and received local anaesthetic. CONCLUSIONS: Laser depilation in the natal cleft is by no means a cure for pilonidal disease. Removal of hair by this method represents an alternative and effective method of hair removal and, although long lasting, is only temporary. However, it allows the sinuses to heal rapidly. It is relatively safe, and simple to teach, with few complications. It should thus be considered as an aid to healing the problem pilonidal sinus.  (+info)

Silicone foam sponge for pilonidal sinus: a new technique for dressing open granulating wounds. (4/51)

A silicone foam sponge has been used to replace the daily packing of deep granulating wounds with moist sterile gauze. In the treatment of pilonidal sinus use of the sponge demands less nursing time and is more comfortable for the patient than the excision and open granulation technique. Patients can usually return to work soon after operation. The method has many applications in surgery, and widespread application of the technique to the management of granulating wounds could result in considerable savings to the NHS in money and skilled nursing time.  (+info)

Recurrent pilonidal cyst and sinus; a plan of preoperative preparation, operation and postoperative care. (5/51)

Evaluation ten years following radical excision and primary closure of recurrent pilonidal cysts led to the conclusion that the method of preoperative and postoperative care and the surgical technique employed gave satisfactory results. In 50 patients operated upon, the duration of symptoms varied from ten days to six years. Primary healing was achieved in all but one case in which there was slight skin overlapping. Thirty-three of the 50 patients were located for appraisal at the end of ten years. Three had had recurrences. The procedure involved eradication of acute infection preoperatively, wide, en bloc radical excision, with primary closure reattaching flaps centrally to the presacral fascia, and drainage of the depths of the wound.  (+info)

A randomised trial of knife versus diathermy in pilonidal disease. (6/51)

BACKGROUND: Pilonidal disease is a common debilitating condition. This prospective randomised study compared excision of pilonidal disease with a scalpel or diathermy with respect to operation time, postoperative pain, functional recovery and wound healing. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients undergoing surgery for pilonidal disease were randomised to excision by scalpel (group 1) or diathermy (group 2). Patients received regular peri-operative oral analgesia and a standardised general anaesthetic technique. Duration of operation was recorded. Following surgery, pain, analgesic requirements, sedation, nausea and vomiting scores and time to mobilise and time to complete healing were compared. RESULTS: Statistical significance between groups was obtained for five outcomes after 32 patients had been recruited; of these, 81% were admitted as emergencies with an abscess. The duration of surgery in group 2 was significantly less, postoperative pain scores and morphine requirements were lower and mobility was regained sooner. CONCLUSIONS: We advocate the use of diathermy needle rather than scalpel blade when undertaking excision of pilonidal disease in both acute and chronic patients.  (+info)

Radiofrequency incision and lay open technique of pilonidal sinus (clinical practice paper on modified technique). (7/51)

With the uncertainty as to the etiology and the complexities often encountered in its treatment, a pilonidal sinus has been considered as a tricky disease. Wide varieties of approaches are employed in dealing with this ailment ranging from a conservative treatment to an extensive surgical excision or repair. However, a method of simple lying open of pilonidal sinus is still considered as the favored one. We describe a modified approach to the procedure of incision and lying open the sinus tracts. This retrospective study describes 18 patients of chronic pilonidal sinus treated with a technique of radiofrequency surgery under local anesthesia. There were 12 males and 6 females within an age group ranging from 16 to 30. The patients were subjected to a follow-up for a period of 18 months. The patients were discharged on the same day of the procedure. Mean period off work was 7 days. The average healing time recorded was 67 days. Two wound complications in the form of premature closure of the skin edges were noted, requiring trimming of the edges. One of these two remained unhealed. At the last follow-up, no recurrence was found in the remaining 17 patients. In the era when the emphasis is on the criteria like minimum hospital stay, less postoperative pain, early resumption to work and a reduced recurrence rate, there is a future to the procedure of incision and lying open of the pilonidal sinuses by using the radiofrequency wave.  (+info)

Pilonidal sinus of the penis. (8/51)

A pilonidal sinus is a subcutaneous sinus containing hair. It is most commonly found in the natal cleft of hirsute men. Here we describe the unusual finding of a pilonidal sinus arising on the male foreskin.  (+info)

A pilonidal cyst or pilonidal sinus is an abscess (sinus, small hole or tunnel) that develops along the tailbone (coccyx) near the cleft of the buttocks. A pilonidal cyst is generally located 5cm-6cm above the anus. A pilonidal cyst has a distinguishing epithelial track (the sinus) located in the skin of the natal cleft, a short distance behind the anus. This sinus track generally contains hair; as such the term pilonidal is derived from the Latin words pilus (hair) and nidus (nest). Pilonidal sinuses were first described in 1880 by Hodges, and was a common condition in drivers during World War II. During World War II, 80,000 U.S. soldiers were diagnosed with pilonidal cysts. Researchers believed the condition was caused by riding in bumpy Jeeps and so became known as Jeep Disease. Additional research has demonstrated appropriate management and some methods of preventing pilonidal cysts, but currently, the cause of pilonidal cysts remains unknown ...

Its a long time since I last wrote on this blog.. Firstly Id like to say that since 2008 when my last surgery healed up I have had no recurrence. The first year to 18 months after I had been pronounced healed were fairly shaky, I found sitting for long periods of time difficult, and in general I felt aware of discomfort and was nervous that I would do too much physically and disrupt the scar tissue. This has now become a lot better, I feel much more normal and whilst I still have some discomfort sitting, largely I forget that the aftermath of my surgeries exists.. I am very grateful, surgery for my pilonidal sinus was a long and rocky road but it had a good ending.. This site gets a relatively small but steady amount of traffic and comments, and I am always pleased to hear success stories and answer questions if I can. Recently I have started to get a significant number of comments related to homeopathic cures for pilonidal disease. Not well written, with not particularly convincing evidence ...

Although it is unusual to start getting new pilonidal disease after age 40, preexisting pilonidal problems often will not go away if they have been untreated. The reason it is rare for pilonidal disease to start as one gets older, is that the gluteal cleft naturally opens up and widens as we age, and the cleft is less deep, and sharp. However, lingering sinus tracts and cysts may still be present and cause problems. So, if you have an untreated sinus tract or cyst, it will not suddenly disappear with age, and may be a problem at any time, even after age 40. Trauma to the gluteal area may cause it to suddenly act up after years of being asymptomatic. Also, especially in women, starting a new habit of wearing tight stretch pants, can deepen the gluteal crease and start new pilonidal disease even after age 40. We have seen patients as old as 70 with pilonidal disease that continues to be symptomatic. So, although it is true that pilonidal disease becomes less and less of a problem as one ages, it ...
Pilonidal cysts are typically diagnosed visually, in conjunction with a health history of the patient. Most experienced colon and rectal specialists will recognize the epithelial track that is characteristic of this disease, especially when it occurs in its usual place near the top of the cleft of the buttocks.. If a pilonidal cyst is infected, which is common among symptomatic cysts, the first line treatment is normally a course of broad-spectrum antibiotics. In some cases, the cyst will also require draining. This is usually done in the doctors office, by opening the sinus and rinsing it out. While this can be effective, surgeons often recommend excision for those with a high risk of developing pilonidal cysts.. During a pilonidal cystectomy, the surgeon removes the cyst and a small area around it. This is done in as an outpatient procedure by a colon and rectal surgeon. Depending on your particular symptoms and risk factors and your doctors preference, your wound may be left open and packed ...

Traditionally Pilonidal Sinus Disease has been treated with surgery to drain abscess or excise the affected area, that can result in significant wounds that can take months to heal if left open. Sometimes to achieve closure of the wound, a skin flap is required to reconstruct the wound off the midline. Unfortunately, these wounds have a relatively high risk of coming apart if closed due to infection, resulting in an open wound that can take many weeks to months to heal, and can require daily dressings initially, causing significant disruption to daily life. The disease can also still recur despite radical excision ...

Excision in the midline and primary suture is a long proven method of treating pilonidal sinus. However its associated with high incidence of post operative infection and recurrence. On the other hand Karydakis operation (excision lateral of the midline, transposition flap and primary suture) is just a slightly more complicated procedure but has five times less recurrences reported in case series. The purpose of the present study is to compare the surgical results and costs of the two surgical methods utilized. In addition the investigators aim to compare the quality of life at defined time points after surgery. Eligible patients are randomized to two groups of surgeons, well trained in either the midline operation or the Karydakis operation (expertise based design). The design of the study allows wide inclusion criteria for participants, a cost-utility approach in the analysis, and a high external validity of the conclusions reached.. Comparison: Midline excision andd primary suture compared ...

Pilonidal disease is an acquired condition of hair follicles in the natal cleft. Mayo first described it in 18333 and later Hodges coined the term pilonidal disease in 18804. The name originates from the terms pilus (hair) and nidus (nest); it is meant to describe a process that originates from a nest of hair. The disease has a peak incidence between 16 and 20 years5 with incidence higher in hirsute obese individuals. The number of patients treated annually is between 40,000 to 70,0006. Treatment involves excising the tracts with associated affected tissue. Recurrence for primary chronic pilonidal sinus excision has been reported from 6-8%7. The lowest recurrence rates of 6% were obtained with fistulotomy with marsupialisation of the sinus tract7. Other sources claim recurrence rates as high as 50%6. The healing of wounds in this area presents unique challenges. Dressings are difficult to secure, risks of infection are high due to fecal soiling and adequate wound care after excision with ...

Because of its rarity, umbilical pilonidal sinus (UPS) is still poorly understood in terms of diagnosis, etiology, and the best treatment options.. UPS is thought caused by hair penetrating the skin, leading to a foreign-body reaction and development of a sinus lined with granulation tissue. Most of the patients complain of pain, discharge or bleeding from the umbilicus when symptoms develop. It can be diagnosed with a careful examination, in which hairs can be seen deep in the umbilicus and usually protrude from a small sinus.. Regarding the optimal treatment of the disease, a complete consensus has not yet been achieved. Some publications are recommended conservative treatment, while surgical treatment is recommended in others.. A more meaningful comparison of the two modalities is that of a randomized controlled trial. We, therefore, present our data of prospective randomized controlled clinical trial comparing conservative versus surgical treatment of UPS.. This was a multicenter, ...

There are two theories in the formation of the disease. The first is that the skin in the area where the event begins is sensitive and the existing hairs are pushed into the skin by friction, the second is the dead skin residues clogging the exit points of the hair and the hair grows inwardly and not inward. For this reason, pilonidal disease is not only seen in the tail, but also in the beard, bikini area, armpits and legs. Among these, the most problematic in terms of the patient is those that are located in the coccyx. Inwardly growing hairs are responded to by an inflammatory reaction in the body and become a cocoon-shaped cyst. The diameter of the cyst is variable. It can even be thought of as an iceberg. The greater the number of holes in the midline (the sinus mouth), the greater will be the spread of the disease in the base. Generally, in very advanced patients, the depth of the base may continue to the membrane of the coccyx, while the width will be different for each patient and the ...
ECX is called a congenital defect in the development of the soft tissue of the sacrococcygeal region. Typically, pilonidal cyst bothers young people aged 15-30 years. ECX is also known as pilonidal cyst, epithelial coccygeal cyst, sacrococcygeal fistula, pilonidal sinus.. Although it is a congenital disease, people can live for years and not even know about their disease. This is because the epithelial the course often does not show symptoms. You can experience itching, discomfort in the coccyx area. The skin in the coccyx area can be wet and may appear purulent discharge. Initially the cyst of the coccyx and can be mistaken for pimple. Most people do not attach much importance to these symptoms. However, sooner or later, the inflammation increases, and to ignore it will not succeed. Symptoms of cysts of the coccyx may not appear for several months and then appear again. During periods when symptoms are not felt, you may think that the illness receded, and everything went by itself. However, it ...

HISTORY. A six-month-old male Bull terrier was presented with a five-month history of spinal pain. Physical examination disclosed no abnormalities. On neurological examination the dog showed mild paraparesis, proprioceptive deficits in the pelvic limbs, and cranial thoracic pain on spinal palpation. Main differential diagnoses included: congenital anomalies (arachnoid cyst, pilonidal cyst, vertebral malformation), inflammatory / infectious disorders and neoplasia.. Routine haematology, biochemistry, urinanalysis and thoracic radiographs showed no abnormalities. A lumbar myelogram was performed. Myelography revealed dorsal displacement of the spinal cord at T3-T4, caused by an intradural-extramedullary lesion in the dorsal contrast column. An MRI of the cranial thoracic spine was performed.
