Introduction:

One of the form of presentation of the sacral coccygeal pilonidal disease is the abscess, for this cases there are various treatment alternatives.

Objective:

Results:

The series consists of 10 patients, 7 males. They are not risk factors recognized in the literature as risk of pilonidal disease. Eight patients completely better within a maximum period of 18 days and two with persistent discharge by what is considered treatment failure.
