    Should hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa best be renamed as "dissecting terminal hair folliculitis"?
    Exp Dermatol 2016 Sep 13. Epub 2016 Sep 13.
    Department of Dermatology and Allergy, Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich, Munich, Germany.
    Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa is a diverse, enigmatic and distressful disease that has aroused growing interest in specialists from different disciplines. Both names describe its classical manifestations in the intertriginous regions and reflect the historical view of the disease definition, but cause confusions in the understanding of its pathogenesis and classification. In the light of the advance in clinical, histopathological and pathophysiological findings, we propose the term "dissecting terminal hair folliculitis" (DTHF) to characterize its disease nature as folliculitis instead of acneiform disease or apocrine gland disorder.

    Perifolliculitis Capitis Abscedens et Suffodiens in a 7 Years Male: A Case Report with Review of Literature.
    Int J Trichology 2015 Oct-Dec;7(4):173-5
    Department of Pathology, Smt. Kashibai Navale Medical College, Narhe, Ambegaon, Pune, Maharashtra, India.
    Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens is the least common of the three conditions included in the follicular occlusion triad. It is one of the causes of scarring alopecia in adult males. Clinically it has to be differentiated from other causes of folliculitis affecting the scalp. Read More

    [Drug treatment of alopecia].

    Klinik und Poliklinik für Dermatologie und Allergologie, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Frauenlobstr. 9-11, 80337, München, Deutschland.
    Background: Alopecia is the term used to describe hairless areas of the scalp. They can follow a specific pattern, be diffuse or circumscript. Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) follows a pattern: in men thinning of temples and vertex up to total baldness; in women thinning of the midline or parietal area. Read More

    Primary scarring alopecias.
    Curr Probl Dermatol 2015 20;47:76-86. Epub 2015 Feb 20.
    Scarring alopecia or cicatricial alopecia results from follicular damage that is sufficient to cause the destruction and replacement of pilosebaceous structures by scar tissue. Primary scarring alopecias represent a group of disorders that primarily affect the hair follicles, as opposed to secondary scarring alopecias, which affect the dermis and secondarily cause follicular destruction. Inflammation may predominantly involve lymphocytes or neutrophils. Read More

    P R Health Sci J 2015 Jun;34(2):102-4
    Board Certified Dermatologist, Private practice San Diego, California.
    Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp (DCS) is an uncommon inflammatory disease that often results in scarring alopecia. Numerous therapies have either proved ineffective or only temporarily effective in the management of this condition. Recent reports show adequate responses to tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors in cases of DCS. Read More

    Successful treatment of recalcitrant dissecting cellulitis of the scalp with ALA-PDT: case report and literature review.
    Photodiagnosis Photodyn Ther 2013 Dec 8;10(4):410-3. Epub 2013 Jul 8.
    Department of Dermatology, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai 200040, People's Republic of China.
    A case of refractory dissecting cellulitis of the scalp (DCS) in a forty-one-year-old Chinese female patient was treated with a total of 6 sessions of topical ALA-PDT at one week intervals. The patient tolerated and responded well to this new approach without any adverse events. This suggested that topical ALA-PDT could be an effective and safe alternative for DCS patients who were refractory to other conventional therapies. Read More

    Concurrent hidradenitis suppurativa, inflammatory acne, dissecting cellulitis of the scalp, and pyoderma gangrenosum in a 16-year-old boy.

    Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 2011 ;19(2):98-102
    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center, Zagreb, Croatia.
    Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens or dissecting cellulitis of the scalp is a rare, chronic destructive folliculitis of the scalp, characterized by painful nodules, purulent drainage, sinus tracts, keloid formation and cicatricial alopecia. The cause of the disease is unknown, but it is similar in many features to hidradenitis suppurativa and acne conglobata. In our case report, the patient's dermatologic appearance included one slightly erythematous, infiltrated alopecic area with draining lesions in the right parietal part of the scalp with a few alopecic areas in other parts of the scalp.

    The importance of histopathologic aspects in the diagnosis of dissecting cellulitis of the scalp.
    Rom J Morphol Embryol 2009 ;50(4):719-24
    Department of Dermatology, "Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iassy, Romania.
    Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp or dissecting folliculitis also known as "perifoliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens" (PCAS), is a rare, severe and distinct dermatological disease. It most probably occurs because of follicular occlusion via hyperkeratosis, having the same mechanism of acnea conglobata and hidradenitis suppurativa. These dermatoses may be associated or may have an isolated evolution. Read More

    Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp treated with rifampicin and isotretinoin: case reports.
    Cutis 2008 Sep;82(3):195-8
    Department of Dermatology, University of Athens, Andreas Sygros Hospital, Greece.
    Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp, or perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens, is an uncommon chronic suppurative disease of the scalp manifested by follicular and perifollicular inflammatory nodules that suppurate and undermine, forming intercommunicating sinuses, and leading to scarring alopecia. Treatment generally fails to obtain a permanently successful result; thus, many therapeutic options have been proposed. We report 4 cases of dissecting cellulitis of the scalp successfully treated with oral rifampicin and oral isotretinoin. Read More

    [Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp after zoster ophthalmicus and trauma].
    Hautarzt 1992 Sep;43(9):576-9

    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

    Squamous cell carcinoma arising in dissecting perifolliculitis of the scalp. A case report and review of secondary squamous cell carcinomas.
    J Am Acad Dermatol 1981 Jun;4(6):673-8
    Squamous cell carcinomas have been reported to arise within acne conglobata and hidradenitis suppurativa. A case report of a secondary squamous cell carcinoma (SSCC) arising in the third member of the follicular occlusion triad, dissecting perifolliculitis of the scalp (Hoffman's disease, perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens) is presented. The fatal outcome of this case and a review of the literature emphasize the biologic aggressiveness of SSCCs arising in chronic inflammatory lesions or scars (Marjolin's ulcers). Read More
