[Ulerythema ophryogenes and folliculitis ulerythematosa reticulata].Hautarzt. 1987 Jul; 38(7):411-3.H
Three fundamental alterations characterize keratosis pilaris syndrome: follicular keratosis, vasodilatation and atrophy. Ulerythema ophryogenes and folliculitis ulerythematosa reticulata are types of the syndrome that localize on the eyebrows and cheeks and sometimes affect the ears and scalp. Punctuate atrophy and hair rarefaction may result. The patients frequently exhibit keratosis simplex as well. The clinical picture is considered to be an autosomal dominant genodermatosis and its treatment is ineffective.
