DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.017
Synopsis: 
Axillary bromhidrosis is an autosomal dominant genetic disease characterized by unpleasant odor caused by interaction between apocrine gland discharge and bacteria. Many treatments have been developed for axillary bromhidrosis. Surgical resection of the apocrine glands is the most effective and is irreversible, but the risk of postoperative complications is very high. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and adverse effects of a new surgical procedure.
