In this article the author discusses topic related to the use of excision and transposition of a rhomboid flap in treating a series of recurrent pilonidal dieses presented by O. el-Khadraway and company. The author emphasize that the technique deserve further widespread use in recurrent pilonidal disease. He also mentions that flap transposition can be undertaken in less than an hour, with careful technique and hemostasis.
