A middle-aged woman repeatedly developed crops of small pustules on the face, the trunk, and the upper arms without any general symptoms. Histological examinations revealed subcorneal pustules in the upper parts of the hair follicles. It is considered that this case may be a follicular variant of subcorneal pustular dermatosis.
