Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a disorder that may cause social isolation or occupational disability. It
may be generalized or localized, and although frequently idiopathic it may be a manifestation of a number of
important systemic diseases. Drugs, surgical procedures, and electrical devices may all be employed by the
physician as therapeutic weapons to treat hyperhidrosis.
