Answer

The association of hidradenitis suppurativa with several disorders in which poral occlusion is prominent supports the theory of a follicular origin of hidradenitis suppurativa. [52] Such disorders include Fox-Fordyce disease, acanthosis nigricans, [57] pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP), [65] steatocystoma multiplex, and Dowling-Degos disease. [66]
