- Hidradenitis-. the inflammation of a sweat gland (usually of the apocrine type). the condition can be idiopathic or occur as a result of or in association with another underlying condition. neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis is a relatively rare variant that has been reported in patients undergoing chemotherapy, usually for non-hodgkin lymphomas or leukemic conditions.
- Hidradenitis Suppurativa-. a chronic, suppurative inflammation of the apocrine sweat glands, that is characterized by clusters of bumps or sores.
- Hidradenitis-. inflammation of the apocrine sweat glands, characterized by redness, itching, pain or swelling of the sweat glands, usually in the axillae or groin.

The tailbone is the small bone at the bottom of your backbone, or spine. Tailbone disorders include tailbone injuries, pain, infections, cysts and tumors. You rarely break your tailbone. Instead, most injuries cause bruises or pulled ligaments. A backward fall onto a hard surface, such as slipping on ice, is the most common cause of such injuries. Symptoms of various tailbone disorders include pain in the tailbone area, pain upon sitting, pain or numbness in the arms or legs due to pressure on nerves in the tailbone area, and a mass or growth you can see or feel.
