To the Editor.—
The report of a case of disseminate and recurrent infundibulo-folliculitis (Arch Derm103:552-553, 1971) which was neither disseminate nor recurrent is in agreement with those of two patients recently seen in our clinic, one of which has been described.1 Both patients were young adult men with the lesions confined to the torso and proximal extremities. In both, the lesions remained unchanged for four and six years, respectively. Should we then not call this entity simply infundibulo-folliculitis?
