Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic suppurative inflammation of the apocrine sweat glands. Axillary, inframammary, intermammary, and peri-areolar apocrine gland involvement may be visualized mammographically. Characteristic lesions tend to be round or oval, lucent, and smooth-bordered, with or without central densities. While diagnosis made purely via mammography is unlikely, having an awareness of this entity may prove useful in patient care in regards to proper utilization of both imaging and consultative resources.
