Welcome to the 13th edition of the European Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation Conference in Lyon!
With the emergence of innovative biologics, combined with surgical strategies, the HS community is undergoing a remarkable revolution. The EHSF is the congress to discuss cutting edge data and emergent therapeutic strategies in HS; with the latest revelations in clinical and fundamental research, or the most ardent debates on diagnostic and treatments.
There is indeed still so much to be done to improve the care of HS patients! This meeting will be a wonderful opportunity for scientists, caregivers and patients to connect in a multidisciplinary hub.
With Lyon hosting the EHSF, attendees will enjoy exciting social programs, the warmest hospitality, and the most exquisite traditional French cuisine.
We are delighted and honored to host the 13th EHSF in Lyon, eagerly anticipating your passionate response to these fundamental issues.
