• Pseudofolliculitis of the bearded area is a common dermatoses among black men. Acne keloidalis probably represents this same condition, but is located in the nape area. Pseudofolliculitis of the pubic area (pseudofolliculitis pubis) has been reported. We wish to report pseudofolliculitis including the entire scalp and to add the term pseudofolliculitis capitis for this heretofore unreported entity.
