Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis(EPF) is a rare non-infectious chronic folliculosis of unknown cause with recurrent crops of pruritic, folliculocentric, sterile papulopustules on the seborrheic zones and a prominent eosinophilic infiltrate. EPF can be classified into three variants: classic type(Ofuji’s disease), human immunodeficiency virus-associated type(HIV-associated eosinophilic folliculitis, HAEF), and infantile type. HAEF represents the different clinical features compared with classic type. We herein report one case of HAEF occurring in a 38-year-old man who had a myriad of extremely itchy follicular papulopustules, nodules, wheal-like non-follicular papules, excoriation and crusts on his face, neck, torso and proximal limbs. The skin biopsy taken from a papular lesion on the chest revealed HAEF.
Key Words: Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis, Human immunodeficiency virus
