    Hyperhidrosis is a common ailment which greatly affects quality of life. There are several treatment options, but there is a lack of consensus and clear guidelines for treatment of these patients.[1,2] Medical (e.g., Botulinum toxin type A) and surgical treatments have been used to control or reduce excessive sweating with variable success.[3,4,5] Only surgical modalities have been capable of conferring a permanent solution.[4] Recently, few studies have been done for clinical evaluation of radiofrequency (RF) energy in the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis(PAH).[6,7] But there is limited published evidence. We report in this paper, successful treatment of refractory PAH with fractionated microneedle radiofrequency (FMR) in a 29-year-old female patient, confirmed with routine histopathological staining.
