Pain Mechanisms in Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Site PI: Sarah Whitley, MD, PhD
Co-PIs: Lauren Orenstein, MD; Daniel Harper, PhD (Emory University)
Sponsors: Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation

This project seeks to delineate the mechanistic basis of pain symptoms in HS by concurrently evaluating sensory profiles and cutaneous nerve structure and function.


Participants will undergo skin biopsy, physical examination including vital signs, and complete questionaires about HS-related pain and quality of life.
