Abstract: This paper deals with 25 patients suffering from this complaint who were treated in the simple manner popularized by Millar and Lord. A pilonidal sinus is a common enough condition in Malta. It is unusual for a surgical out-patient session not to include a patient with this complaint. Extensive operations with wide excision of tissue were formerly the rule. Simpler procedures are at least as effective. Healing is more rapid and the operation could be an out-patient procedure. Two complications may arise, namely hemorrhage and abscesses in the lateral tracks.
