1/3. Acne keloidalis in females: case report and review of literature.

    Acne keloidalis, also known as folliculitis nuchae, is a form of chronic scarring folliculitis characterized by fibrotic papules and nodules of the nape of the neck and the occiput. It particularly affects men of African descent and is rarely ever seen in women. We here report the clinical findings of two Nigerian women who developed acne keloidalis. This report also reviews the pathogenesis of this disease.

2/3. keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans and acne keloidalis nuchae.

    A 27-year-old man presented with a 10-year history of scarring alopecia on the vertex of the scalp associated with follicular crusting and pustule formation, and a papular eruption on the posterior neck. Additionally, there was keratosis pilaris on the cheeks, eyebrows and thighs. histology from the vertex showed scarring with a mixed perifollicular inflammatory infiltrate and foci of acute suppurative folliculitis. With clinical correlation, the diagnosis of keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans and concurrent acne keloidalis nuchae was made. The association of keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans with acne keloidalis nuchae has not previously been described. The patient responded to treatment with oral isotretinoin 20 mg (0.25 mg/kg) daily for 12 months.

3/3. Acne keloidalis nuchae and tufted hair folliculitis.

    Acne keloidalis nuchae is a chronic, scarring folliculitis that affects mostly black patients and is located on the back of the neck of young adults. The course is progressive and leads to hypertrophic scarring, chronic abscesses and hair loss. We discuss the relationship between acne keloidalis and tufted hair folliculitis, pointing out the possibility that tufted hair folliculitis is not a specific disease but secondary to other progressive folliculitis like folliculitis decalvans, dissecting cellulitis or acne keloidalis.
