Pilonidal disease (PD) is a chronic inflammatory condition located in the natal cleft originating from the subcutaneous hair characterized by sinuses and painful cysts. PD has a wide symptom perspective, presenting different clinical findings and affecting the patient's quality of life in case of frequent recurrences. There is no definite consensus on when definitive treatment should be given after drainage of pilonidal abscess. In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the effect of the timing chosen for Limberg flap reconstruction after drainage of pilonidal abscess on the postoperative process and complications.
