    Amicrobial pustulosis of the folds: Where have we gone 25years after its original description?
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2017 Mar 24;144(3):169-175. Epub 2017 Feb 24.
    Clinique dermatologique, hôpitaux universitaires de Strasbourg, 1, place de l'Hôpital, 67091 Strasbourg, France. Electronic address:
    Background: Twenty-five years ago at the Journées Dermatologiques de Paris, Prof. Béatrice Crickx described a new association, "antimicrobial pustulosis and systemic lupus erythematosus", a condition now known as amicrobial pustulosis of the folds (APF). The aim of this study is to analyse the clinical and laboratory characteristics of APF and to outline the gradual advancement of knowledge regarding this disease. Read More

    [How I explore ... primary cicatricial alopecias].
    Rev Med Liege 2012 Jan;67(1):44-50
    CHR hutois, Service de Dermatologie, Huy.
    Primary cicatricial alopecias (PCA) result from the inflammatory destruction of the hair follicle, followed by its replacement by a fibrotic streamer. The involvement of multipotent stem cells of the hair follicle is possible through a transdifferentiation pathway. The diagnosis relies on clinico-pathologic correlations. Read More

    Erosive pustular dermatosis of the leg: long-term control with topical tacrolimus.
    Australas J Dermatol 2011 Feb;52(1):e15-7
    Department of Biomedical and Surgical Sciences, Section of Dermatology and Venereology, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.
    Erosive pustular dermatosis of the leg is an unusual form of sterile pustulosis that typically affects the lower limbs of elderly patients. We report the cases of two women who developed erythematous skin plaques with pustules that coalesced and evolved into erosions and crusted areas. Histology showed epidermal spongiosis with subcorneal pustules and a dermal infiltrate with eosinophils and neutrophils. Read More

    Localized erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp at the site of a cochlear implant: successful treatment with topical tacrolimus.
    Clin Exp Dermatol 2009 Jul 15;34(5):e157-9. Epub 2008 Dec 15.
    Institute of Dermatological Sciences, University of Milan, IRCCS Polyclinic Foundation, Hospital Mangiagalli and Regina Elena, Milan, Italy.
    Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp (EPDS) is a rare form of nonmicrobial pustulosis mainly occurring in elderly patients with long-term sun damage to the skin. Clinically, it is characterized by pustular lesions that progressively merge into erosive and crusted areas over the scalp. The histology of EPDS is nonspecific, and its pathophysiology remains undetermined, with various types of local trauma possibly acting as the triggering factor. Read More

    [Erosive pustulosis of the scalp: 3 cases].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 2005 May;132(5):475-7
    Service de Dermatologie, CHRU Montpellier, Hôpital Saint-Eloi, 80, avenue Augustin Fliche, 34295 Montpellier Cedex 5.
    Background: Erosive pustulosis of the scalp is a rare entity of unknown etiology mainly affecting elderly people. It is often triggered by local trauma and features chronic pustules of the scalp evolving toward scarring alopecia. Its treatment is not yet codified. Read More

    A peculiar form of amicrobial pustulosis of the folds associated with systemic lupus erythematosus and other auto-immune diseases.
    Lupus 1997 ;6(6):514-20
    Services de Médecine Interne, Groupe Hospitalier Pitié-Salpêtrière,Paris, France.
    Amicrobial pustulosis of the folds is a new entity which was initially described in association with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We report four cases of this rare pustulosis occurring in the course of various auto-immune disorders. Dermatological features were similar in all patients. Read More

    [Erosive pustulosis of the scalp. A spongiform pustular dermatosis?].
    Ann Dermatol Venereol 1993 ;120(10):693-5
    Service de Dermatologie, Hôpital Sainte-Marguerite, Marseille.
    A case of erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp is reported. The lesions were eroded with crusting and pustule formation and were localised on the scalp. Investigations for infection, autoimmunity, vascular or tumoral aetiology were negative. Read More

    [Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp after zoster ophthalmicus and trauma].
    Hautarzt 1992 Sep;43(9):576-9
    Dermatologische Klinik und Poliklinik, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
    Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp (EPDS), first described in 1979, is a rare, chronic, pustular condition with scarring alopecia, and nonspecific histological findings. While the initial responded to steroids is good, it can be treated successfully by oral administration of zinc sulphate. Local trauma has recently been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of EPDS. Read More
