A severe case of perifolliculitis capitis abscedens et suffodiens, refractory to the usual therapy, is reported. Because the disease is chronic, and the excellent results obtained in the excision and graft of axillae with severe hidradenitis suppurativa, the patient was scalped therapeutically with excellent results.
