[A classical form of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis--successful therapy with PUVA].Hautarzt. 1991 Apr; 42(4):247-50.H
Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis was first defined by Ofuji et al. in 1970 . It is reported most frequently in Japanese patients. It is characterized by the repetitive appearance of sterile papulopustular lesions that heal without scarring. Case reports from outside Japan frequently refer to ulcerating inflammation. We describe a classic form of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis in an European, and we show for the first time that the eosinophilic pustular folliculitis responds well to PUVA treatment.
