Hailey-Hailey disease. Report of a case treated surgically.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

A 51-year-old man with Hailey-Hailey disease was treated with a split thickness skin graft of the left axilla. The dramatic improvement in the grafted area is contrasted with the continued disease activity in the untreated axilla and other intertriginous areas. Local excision and grafting, with a resultant decrease in sweating and maceration, is an effective form of therapy for Hailey-Hailey disease.
