Department of Dermatology, Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha 410005, China. Electronic address:

Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens (PCAS), also known as dissecting cellulitis of the scalp (DCS), is a rare, chronic, suppurative inflammatory disease of the scalp which may evolve into cicatricial alopecia. Its refractory nature has a detrimental impact on patients' quality of life. Here, we report five cases of PCAS treated with 5% 5-aminolevulinic acid-based photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT), prior to which different methods of surgical intervention were given. Read More

Alopecia Outpatient Clinic, Hospital Naval Marcílio Dias, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Dissecting cellulitis is an inflammatory, chronic, and recurrent disease of the hair follicles that mainly affects young Afro-descendent men. Trichoscopy is a method of great diagnostic value for disorders of the scalp. Clinical and trichoscopic findings of dissecting cellulitis are heterogeneous and may present features common to non-cicatricial and scarring alopecia. Read More

Follicular occlusion tetrad in a male patient with pachyonychia congenita: clinical and genetic analysis.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Oct;33 Suppl 6:36-39

Dermatology Clinic, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

The case of a 24-year-old male patient affected by follicular occlusion tetrad (acne conglobata, hidradenitis suppurativa, pilonidal cyst and dissecting cellulitis of the scalp) associated with clinical signs of pachyonychia congenita (PC)-2 (focal palmoplantar keratoderma, plantar pain, onycodystrophy and multiple cysts) is reported. The diagnosis was supported by genetic analysis that showed heterozygous mutation within the exon 1 of KRT17 gene. This case may reflect different expressions of a phenotypic spectrum induced by a common genetic alteration. Read More

Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens treatment with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors: A case report and review of published cases.

J Dermatol 2019 Sep 4;46(9):802-807. Epub 2019 Jul 4.

Department of Dermatology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan.

Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens (PCAS) or dissecting cellulitis is a rare condition presenting deep follicular occlusions, follicular ruptures and follicular infections in the scalp area with unknown etiology, which consequently cause primary neutrophilic cicatricial alopecia by the repeated follicular inflammation. PCAS is categorized as one of the "follicular occlusion tetrad" along with hidradenitis suppurativa, acne conglobata and pilonidal cyst. In the pathogenesis of the follicular occlusion tetrad, the involvement of neutrophils and its activator tumor necrosis factor (TNF) have been discussed. Read More

Should hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa best be renamed as "dissecting terminal hair folliculitis"?

Exp Dermatol 2017 06 24;26(6):544-547. Epub 2017 Jan 24.

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.

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

Perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens in a caucasian: diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.

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.

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.

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
