Widespread eosinophilic pustular folliculitis in a nonimmunocompromised patient.
Med Princ Pract. 2014; 23(5):475-7.MP

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

We present a case of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis, a rare dermatosis which is often associated with HIV infection or internal malignancies.

CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION

We report the case of a 66-year-old man with a medical history of hypertension. Histopathological examination showed a dense follicular inflammatory infiltrate with abundant eosinophils. The clinical response to indomethacin was excellent with no recurrence during the follow-up.

CONCLUSION

The patient responded well to indomethacin treatment.
