Management and Treatment of Pilonidal Disease

About this Research Topic

Pilonidal disease is a common disorder of the natal cleft of the sacrococcygeal area with an estimated incidence of about 26 cases out of 100,000. Currently, its etiology remains a controversial issue but is generally considered to be an acquired, not a congenital disease. 


In fact, risk factors are familial history, male sex, obesity, prolonged sitting, poor hygiene, but above all the excessive body hair/hair in the natal clef. 


Several treatment options are available including gluteal cleft hair removal, tract ablation, simple excision, wide excision with flap reconstruction and minimally invasive procedures but there is no one size fits all option. 


In the present Research Topic, we are encouraging experienced colleagues to submit original research articles, case studies, and review articles regarding the main points of debate of pilonidal disease. 


Topics which authors may cover include, but are not limited to:

• Etiopathogenesis & pathophysiology

• Classification and Scoring System

• Mini-Invasive Endoscopic Procedures

• Flap Procedures 

• Traditional Approach

• Pilonidal Wound Care

• Special Conditions


Keywords: Pilonidal sinus disease, Pilonidal abscess, Endoscopic pilonidal sinus treatment, Traditional Procedures, Wound care, Healing, Recurrence, Non-surgical Treatment, Bascom Cleft Lift, Gips Procedure, SiLaC


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
