Pilonidal disease is usually observed in the sacrococcygeal region of young male adults. Because of the absence of a consensus on the treatment of the disease, high recurrence rates, high direct and indirect cost and need for a long wound care, it is a highly reputable disease. High incidence rates in the working population along with high recurrence rates led the surgeons to focus on the treatment of the disease intensely. In this article, the surgical treatment option for sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease has been briefly reviewed. [Archives Medical Review Journal 2013; 22(4.000): 486-498]
