A 26-year-old Army man with a pre-operative clinical diagnosis of Pilonidal Disease was found to have a long lateral track extension intra-operatively. Surgery was abandoned and the patient was subjected to further radiological, microbiological and histopathological tests for etiology. After extensive work up, he was subjected to surgery with an excision of about 25 cm track and primary closure of the wound. He made uneventful recovery with excellent wound healing. Final histopathology report showed it to be Non-granulomatous Inflammation, without any hair elements due to which we would like to term it as a case of Idiopathic Natal Sinus (INS) and not a Pilonidal Disease. 4 year follow up has shown no recurrence.
