Pilonidal sinus can not be mentioned as a minor surgery procedure because of high recurrence rate, high morbidity and long disability period. In our clinic between the years of 1988-1991, 92 pilonidal sinus cases were treated primarily with Limberg's flap technique. Only in two cases, late wound healing was detected, no other complications and no recurrences were seen. Compared with other primary treatment methods, Limberg's flap technique was observed to be much more convenient for pilonidal sinus cases.
