The case reported is that of a Negro boy seen on several occasions because of a recurrent eruption which in all important clinical and histologic aspects resembles the original case of "disseminate and recurrent infundibulo-folliculitis" reported by Hitch and Lund. Failure to influence the course of the eruption with a variety of therapeutic agents is recorded and further comment made on the differential diagnosis involved in this condition.
