ABSTRACT32 year-old female, with intermammary lesions secondary to sinus pilonidal, scars and fetid exudates. The physical exam showed acne conglobata with an active inflammatory component in trunk and gluteal region, suppurative hidradenitis and extensive follicular affection due to dissecting cellulitis. This is an exceptional presentation of a sporadic syndrome or follicular occlusion tetrad condition, with a complex and multidisciplinary treatment. This is a clinical variant, because of age, gender and insidious presentation, whose prognosis, despite the varied therapeutical measures, is still uncertain.
