ما هو الفرق بين الناسور العصعصى والكيس العصعصى؟

Both pilonidal sinus and pilonidal cysts occur in the cleft between the buttocks and involve debris, hair, and infection. However, there are some key differences between the two conditions in terms of anatomy, symptoms, and العلاج المناسب. So, let’s find out the key difference between a pilonidal sinus and a pilonidal cyst.

Understanding the distinction can help guide appropriate diagnosis and management.

Difference Between A Pilonidal Sinus And A Pilonidal Cyst: Overview

  • The sinus is an open tunnel, and the cyst is an enclosed sac.
  • Sinus causes drainage; cyst causes a lump/abscess.
  • The sinus requires opening up; the cyst requires complete removal.
  • Both involve hair, and debris penetrating skin in the buttocks cleft.
  • Proper diagnosis is needed to determine optimal treatment.

What Is A Pilonidal Sinus?
