Numerous multiple hairs scattered over a chronic, pyodermatous plaque of 18 years' duration on the parietal region of the scalp occurred in a healthy 19-year-old Japanese boy. The outlook of the hair distribution on the lesion resembled a hairbrush. Although the histologic feature was similar to that of folliculitis keloidalis, the lesion responded well to topically applied antibacterial therapy.
