Are Bacteria Infectious Pathogens in Hidradenitis Suppurativa? Debate at the Symposium for Hidradenitis Suppurativa Advances Meeting, November 2017

Abstract : In November 2017, a formal debate on the role of bacteria in the pathogenesis of hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) was held at the 2nd Symposium on Hidradenitis Suppurativa Advances (SHSA) in Detroit, Michigan. In this report, we present both sides of the argument as debated at the SHSA meeting and then discuss the potential role of bacteria as classic infectious pathogens versus an alternative pathogenic role as activators of dysregulated commensal bacterial-host interactions. Although there was consensus that bacteria play a role in pathogenesis and thus are pathogenic, there was a compelling discussion about whether bacteria in HS incite an infectious disease as we classically understand it or whether bacteria might play a different role in HS pathogenesis.
