CALDERIN BOUZA, Raúl Orlando et al. Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (Ofuji disease): A case presentation. Rev cubana med [online]. 2007, vol.46, n.2. ISSN 0034-7523.

A 65 years-old female Caucasian patient, who had suffered for one year and a half recurrent rashes of erythematous, pustular, follicular and sterile lesions with peripheral extension and central clearing in addition to itching in her face, trunk, limbs, palms and soles, was presented. The onset of the disease occured in the last two locations some weeks or months before affecting the others. During this period, a number of therapies were applied without any positive result. For these reasons, it was decided to refer the patient to the hospital where skin biopsy was performed, and the results were submitted for discussion to a Dermatology group and also for clinical-pathological discussion to our basic working team. The diagnosis was complex because she suffered from eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (Ofuji disease) in its classical form, a rare pathology in females and associated to psoriasis.

Palabras clave : Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis; human immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV).
