To the Editor:—
In reference to a communication in the QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS (JAMA191:1040 [March 22] 1965) about persistent scalp infections, there is an additional treatment that offers excellent results, especially for the perifolliculitis abscedens et suffodiens with which I think the patient is afflicted. The treatment is that of complete temporary epilation by roentgen irradiation employing the Adamson-Keinbock technique which can be administered by the therapeutic radiologist or dermatologist. Both the appropriate oral and topical antibiotics are also administered.
