Among the patients with acanthosis nigricans (31 cases, 62%), neck was the most common site involved (30 cases, 60%) and least common site was intermammary and submammary region (2 cases, 4%), Table 3.
The following three criteria must be met: 1) typical lesions (i.e., deep-seated painful nodules, or "blind boils" in early lesions) and abscesses, draining sinus, bridged scars, and "tombstone" double-ended pseudo-comedones in secondary lesions; 2) typical topography (i.e., axillae, groin, perineal region, buttocks, and infra- and intermammary folds); and 3) chronicity and recurrences.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the apocrine glands, which mostly occurs in the axillar, inguinal, perianal, and perineal regions, as well as the inframammary fold and the intermammary cleft.
In descending order of involvement, it can occur on the skin of the axillary, inguinal, perianal and perineal regions, the inframammary fold and the intermammary cleft, the buttocks and the pubic region, the torso, the scalp, the retroauricular region, and the eyelid.
The score of each site was multiplied by the constant for the area (forehead = 0.1, scalp = 0.4, nasolabial = 0.1, eyebrow = 0.1, postauricular = 0.1, auricular = 0.1, intermammary = 0.2, back = 0.2, and cheek or chin = 0.1).
The regions typically affected are the intertriginous areas--the axillae, groin (genital, perigenital, anal, and perianal areas), infra-and intermammary skin, buttocks, and upper thighs, although other areas--such as the nape of the neck and scalp--can be involved.
1997: The International Federation of Associations of Anatomists named the space between a woman's breasts her intermammary sulcus.
Hence, it pays exclusive attention to the coitus in its strictest sense, i.e., the act of inserting a penis into a vagina, and not in the insertion of the penis into any other bodily opening or fold, such as anal coitus, interfemoral coitus (between the partner's thighs) or intermammary coitus (between a woman's breasts).
Physical examination revealed large volume, conjoint breasts showing Grade I breast ptosis (according to Regnault's classification), without an intervening intermammary sulcus [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b.
Initial studies reported favorable outcomes using Y-V plasty, yet with an inevitably visible scar in the intermammary space.[sup][1] Since then, surgeons have attempted to find a way to avoid scarring in the presternal area,[sup][2] particularly in Asian patients, given their predisposition to keloid formation with any incision in the sternal area.[sup][5] Surgical removal of the intermammary web-like tissue aims at a better cosmetic outcome through the avoidance of sternal incisions.[sup][5] Therefore, small or remote incisions made in an inconspicuous region with access to the inner quadrants of the breast and presternal area are preferred.[sup][5]
Their new intermammary cleavages without bras are between 1 cm and 2.5 cm, and lateral borders of the breast are on the area of the AAL.
The best implant width can produce not only the best intermammary cleavage, but also a suitable fullness on the lateral side of the breast.
