From the reviews:
"The book gives a good historical overview on HS emphasizing on the many confusing names the disease has been given since its first description more than a hundred years ago and the century long discussion of the involvement of apocrine glands in the pathology of the disease. ... In conclusion, this book is well structured, easy to read and are a great source of information ... . recommendable for all physicians with more than a superficial interest in HS."
