Hidradenitis suppurativa

Patients with hidradenitis suppurativa are at relatively high risk for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), according to a recent meta-analysis.

Researchers from Taiwan searched the literature and identified five relevant case-control studies, two cross-sectional studies, and one cohort study covering a total of 93,600 participants, mostly from the US and Europe.
