Acneiform follicular mucinosis.
Clin Exp Dermatol. 2004 Jul; 29(4):396-8.CE

Abstract

Follicular mucinosis is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of unknown aetiology, presenting as mucin deposits around the follicles and sebaceous glands. It can progress to alopecia of the scalp and other hairy areas. Follicular mucinosis may be a benign primary idiopathic disorder or secondary to malignant lymphoproliferative disorders. It can present with shiny papules or sharply marginated infiltrated erythematous scaling plaques, with follicular accentuation on the scalp, neck, trunk and limbs. There are many local and systemic treatments. This paper discusses the case of an adult with an uncommon acneiform follicular mucinosis controlled with systemic corticosteroids.
