A patient was seen in 1959 who presented a disseminate and recurrent follicular eruption which seemed to be unique. Since then no similar eruption has been encountered by us and we find no identical disorder recorded in the literature.
Because the pathologic changes principally involve the upper portions of the follicles, we suggest the designation "disseminate and recurrent infundibulo-folliculitis" unless previous cases under a different designation, which we overlooked, are brought to light.
