In Reply Dr Wortsman stresses the need for accurate characterization of lesions and the potential role for high-frequency ultrasonography. The introduction of high-frequency ultrasonography has led to greater diagnostic accuracy in many fields of clinical medicine and may also do so in dermatology, particularly in HS, in which lesions occur in the dermis or the subcutaneous tissues. We agree with Wortsman that high-frequency ultrasonography is a strong candidate for the preferred imaging technology, although additional validation is necessary before it is fully integrated into daily clinical practice.
