Follicular mucinosis (FM) is a rare inflammatory disorder histologically characterized by mucin deposition in the follicular epithelium. There is no standard therapy for FM and several treatments have been described in the literature. We present the case of a 59 year-old female affected by a recalcitrant FM with diffuse scalp alopecia, in which complete clinical remission was achieved after a combination of topical tacalcitol and photodynamic therapy.
