This review article summarizes the approach to patients with pilonidal sinus disease based on morphologically different stages. Pilonidal sinus disease is a very common condition especially among young people. The proposed classifications for pilonidal disease and commonly used procedures are summarized here. There is currently limited literature to justify a particular treatment over another based on disease stage. Off-midline closure has the lowest long-term recurrence rate.
