Background: Poland syndrome (PS) is a rare congenital anomaly associated with absent or hypoplastic pectoralis major muscle and a wide spectrum of ipsilateral thoracic and upper extremity deformities. Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a recurrent inflammatory follicular disease that commonly affects the apocrine-bearing skin and involves follicular occlusion and hyperkeratosis.
Case Report: We report a case of a 46-year-old male with a history of chronic recurrent hidradenitis suppurativa who was incidentally found to have a simple type of Poland syndrome with incidental hypoplasia of ipsilateral gluteal muscles.
Conclusions: Not only can PS present with HS, which we describe for the first time, but it is also associated with a wide variability of symptoms such as previously unknown co-existence of gluteal muscles hypoplasia.
