Overview

The authors transparently analyse in the article the disease pilonidal sinus whose incidence in the Czech Republic reaches between 26/100 000 inhabitants. Men are more afflicted by the disease than women. Ethiopathogenesis is not still explained. In pathophysiology of the disease hair fulfils the key role. Only 35–50% of sick people look up the doctor. The clinical picture of the disease is varied. The diagnostics comes out from the inspection, palpation and probing the sinus. The surgeon leads the therapy, the dermatovenerologist can fulfil the disease by laser depilation of hypertrichosis in the intergluteal area. The disease has a specific character, it lowers the quality of the patients’ life and it causes them the psychological problems. Interdisciplinary cooperation of the surgeon and the dermatovenerologist is essential in the frame of the diagnostics and the therapy.
