A skin biopsy specimen demonstrated an inflammatory infiltration that was mainly perifollicular in distribution and consisted of eosinophils and neutrophils. Treatment was initiated with oral prednisone (60 mg/d), wet compresses, and fusidic acid cream. After the disease activity was suppressed, the corticosteroid dose was tapered and isotretinoin was added to the regimen, with a marked improvement of the lesions. The patient tolerated the isotretinoin therapy well, without reactivation of his Crohn disease.
