Pilonidal Sinus

Pilonidal sinus disease is a disease of the inter-gluteal region characterised by the formation of a sinus in the cleft of the buttocks. The pilonidal sinus disease development begins with a hair follicle in the intergluteal cleft becoming infected or inflamed. This inflammation obstructs the opening of the follicle, which extends inwards, forming a ‘pit’.A foreign body-type reaction then lead to formation of a cavity, connected to the surface of the skin by an epithelialised sinus tract . These cavities will often discharge serous fluid and can periodically become acutely infected to form pilonidal abscess.
