Management of axillary hidradenitis with complete excision and reconstruction using a DRT with skin grafting appears to be safe and effective in the pediatric population. Patients in the current cohort tolerated the procedure well and had no complications, including loss of DRT or skin graft, infection, loss of axillary range of motion, or recurrence of hidradenitis. Surgeons should consider using this method of reconstruction for axillary hidradenitis, although more extensive studies are needed to confirm its safety and efficacy.
