    Department of Pediatrics, University of California, San Francisco, California.
    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a rare cutaneous disorder that typically occurs in three clinical contexts: men, individuals who are immunosuppressed or have human immunodeficiency virus, and infants. A fourth subtype occurring 2 to 3 months after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has recently been described in several adults. We report two cases of EPF arising in children after HSCT.

    Ofuji disease: a rare dermatosis and its challenging therapeutic approach.
    An Bras Dermatol 2016 Sep-Oct;91(5):646-648
    Instituto Lauro de Souza Lima (ILSL) - Bauru (SP), Brazil.
    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) or Ofuji disease is a rare dermatosis, prone to recurrence and chronicity. The peak incidence occurs in the third decade of life and its exact etiology remains unknown. Evidence suggests that the expression of adhesion molecules and the production of cytokines activate the follicular unit, but the stimulus that triggers these changes remains unclear. Read More

    Pilosebaceous targeting by isotretenoin-loaded invasomal gel for the treatment of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis: optimization, efficacy and cellular analysis.
    Drug Dev Ind Pharm 2017 Feb 2;43(2):293-304. Epub 2016 Nov 2.

    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis: A proposal of diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms.
    J Dermatol 2016 Nov 30;43(11):1301-1306. Epub 2016 Mar 30.
    Department of Dermatology, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.
    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a sterile inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology. In addition to classic EPF, which affects otherwise healthy individuals, an immunocompromised state can cause immunosuppression-associated EPF (IS-EPF), which may be referred to dermatologists in inpatient services for assessments. Infancy-associated EPF (I-EPF) is the least characterized subtype, being observed mainly in non-Japanese infants. Read More

    J Dermatol 2016 Aug 15;43(8):919-27. Epub 2016 Feb 15.
    Department of Dermatology, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.
    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a non-infectious inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology that principally affects the hair follicles. There are three variants of EPF: (i) classic EPF; (ii) immunosuppression-associated EPF, which is subdivided into HIV-associated (IS/HIV) and non-HIV-associated (IS/non-HIV); and (iii) infancy-associated EPF. Oral indomethacin is efficacious, especially for classic EPF. Read More

    Follicular Lymphomatoid Papulosis: An Eosinophilic-Rich Follicular Subtype Masquerading as Folliculitis Clinically and Histologically.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2016 Jan;38(1):e1-10

    Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) is an uncommon CD30 lymphoproliferative disorder with a relatively excellent prognosis. Ten to twenty percent of cases, however, are associated with a lymphoma, typically systemic or cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma, mycosis fungoides, or Hodgkin lymphoma. Subtypes divide LyP into infiltrate-descriptive categories along a spectrum of histological manifestation. Read More

    CUTANEOUS EPITHELIOTROPIC T-CELL LYMPHOMA WITH METASTASES IN A VIRGINIA OPOSSUM (DIDELPHIS VIRGINIANA).
    J Zoo Wildl Med 2015 Jun;46(2):409-13
    A 2-yr-old, captive, intact female Virginia opossum ( Didelphis virginiana ) with a 7-mo history of ulcerative dermatitis and weight loss was euthanatized for progressive worsening of clinical signs. Initially the opossum was treated with several courses of antibiotics, both topically and systemically; systemic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication; and, later, systemic glucocorticoids, with no improvement in clinical signs. Histopathologic samples of skin lesions taken 3 mo into the course of disease revealed no evidence of neoplasia; however, cytologic samples of a skin lesion taken 5 mo into the course of disease revealed mature lymphocytes, and were suggestive of cutaneous lymphoma.

    Eosinophilic Skin Diseases: A Comprehensive Review.
    Clin Rev Allergy Immunol 2016 Apr;50(2):189-213
    Department of Dermatology, The Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, 139 Middle Renmin Road, Changsha, Hunan, 410011, China.
    Eosinophilic skin diseases, commonly termed as eosinophilic dermatoses, refer to a broad spectrum of skin diseases characterized by eosinophil infiltration and/or degranulation in skin lesions, with or without blood eosinophilia. The majority of eosinophilic dermatoses lie in the allergy-related group, including allergic drug eruption, urticaria, allergic contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and eczema. Parasitic infestations, arthropod bites, and autoimmune blistering skin diseases such as bullous pemphigoid, are also common. Read More

    Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is characterized by a non-infectious infiltration of eosinophils in the hair follicles. It has three variants: (i) classic EPF; (ii) immunosuppression-associated EPF, which herein is subdivided into HIV-associated (IS/HIV) and non-HIV-associated (IS/non-HIV); and (iii) infancy-associated EPF (I-EPF). The rarity of EPF has hindered our understanding of this entity. Read More

    Eosinophilic follicular reaction induced by Demodex folliculorum mite: a different disease from eosinophilic folliculitis.

    Department of Dermatology, University Hospital La Fe, Valencia, Spain.
    Eosinophilic folliculitis (EF) is an idiopathic dermatitis included in the spectrum of eosinophilic pustular follicular reactions. Demodex folliculorum has been implicated as contributing to the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus-associated EF, but it has not been described outside this context. We present an immunocompetent 65-year-old white man with a 5-year history of recurrent pruritic erythematous and oedematous lesions on his face, neck and scalp. Read More

    [Verification of the hygienic hypothesis by evaluating the regional incidence of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis].
    J UOEH 2013 Sep;35(3):201-5
    Department of Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan.
