          Abstract

          Acne inversa (AI) is a chronic inflammatory skindisease significantly impacting the patient’s quality of life.Management guidelines for acne inversa during pregnancy donot exist. We decided to use a single-use negative pressurewound therapy (PICO, Smith & Nephew) while managing apregnant patient with AI. Negative pressure wound therapy(NPWT) seemed to improve the patient’s condition, managingthe exudation, reducing edema, and improving local regeneration,as well as epithelialization. The method was also absolutelysafe for the fetus and feasible to conduct in the outpatientdepartment - what was of utmost importance for the patient.The telemedical monitoring of wound healing using mobiletechnologies seems to be gaining importance for patients andmedical practitioners. In the described case, we used the iWound(Polmedi, Poland) application in an outpatient setting.
