What is Pilonidal sinus?
In early stages, patient don’t understand the seriousness of a pimple on buttock near tail bone at lower back area is pilonidal sinus. But that pimple can be an external opening of pilonidal sinus or abscess. ‘ Pilonidal ‘ means nest of hairs. A pilonidal sinus is a tube like random shape structure which contains a tuft of hairs. This may contain infected tissues, pus, blood. When the tunnel gets blocked, it is called cyst / abscess. There is no perfect translation / meaning in Marathi for the word “pilonidal sinus”.
When hair and it’s root get infected, the hair may not come out side skin. It may travel below skin spreading infection to other hair roots. This infection grows in the mid line of body and may have 1 / 2 or more holes involved. It may remain for 2/4 or more years if untreated.
