Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory disease of follicular epithelium; many comorbidities occur that disrupt the quality of life of patients. Amyloidosis is one of them. We present a case with systemic amyloidosis secondary to HS and responding positively to secukinumab therapy. Secukinumab may also be an important option for amyloidosis findings in HS patients.
