Hyperhidrosis Management: from Diagnosis to Therapy

Posted On 2019-04-24 16:57:06

Hyperhidrosis affects millions of people around the world (nearly 5% of the world's population), impacting nearly all aspects of their life. There are two types of hyperhidrosis; we would focus our interest on the idiopatic (or focal) type that has unclear pathophysiology and is approached all over the world with different treatments ranging from topical medicine to thoracic surgery.

Despite several studies are available in literature addressing the main topics about hyperidrosis diagnosis and management, many points are still unclear and need an in- depth analysis. Therefore, our aim for this focused issue on Hyperhidrosis Management: from Diagnosis to Therapy is to involve highly skilled pathophysiologists, dermatologists, radiologists and thoracic surgeons in order to edit an up-to-date focused issue for specialists and general practitioners approaching this disease.
