Abstract: This paper investigated the effect of ultrasonic photodynamic therapy combined with sinus incision and drainage on purulent sweat adenitis. Selected 80 patients with purulent sweat adenitis randomly divided into test group and control group, with 40 cases in each group. The test group underwent ultrasound-guided photodynamic therapy and drainage, and the control group underwent simple sinus incision and drainage treatment. Observed the patients' visual analogue scale (VAS) scale, peripheral blood white blood cell (WBC), hypersensitive C response protein(hs-CRP) before and after treatment. Scored the patients' wound healing and swelling degree, and then analyzed the efficacy of the two groups. The results showed that the VAS score of test group was lower than that of control group at 3 d and 1 week after operation (P<0.05). In test group, WBC at 3 d and serum hs-CRP at 3 d and 1 week after operation were lower than those in control group (P<0.05). The wound healing and swelling scores at 3 d and 1 week after operation were lower than that in control group (P<0.05). The overall treatment effect of patients in test group was better than those in control group. Ultrasonic photodynamic therapy combined with sinus incision and drainage for suppurative sweat adenitis can significantly reduce the postoperative pain feeling and promote the early healing of the wound.
