[Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis. Description of a clinical case treated with PUVA therapy].
G Ital Dermatol Venereol. 1990 Feb; 125(1-2):49-52.GI

Abstract

We report the case of a 62 years-old Italian man affected by crops of pruritic follicular sterile papulo-pustules on the face, trunk and arms. Histopathologic examination revealed a perifollicular inflammatory cell infiltrate composed mostly of eosinophils. These features are characteristic of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis. There is not any uniformly effective treatment for this condition. In our patient the disease did not respond to dapsone, H1 antihistamines and indomethacin. Oral corticosteroids gave good results but were unsuitable for their side effects. The response to PUVA therapy was excellent. In our opinion PUVA therapy is a highly effective and safety treatment for EPF.
