Abstract

Disseminate and recurrent infundibulofolliculitis (DRIF) is an uncommon pruritic follicular eruption of unknown etiology that is predominantly seen in black men. This condition tends to affect the trunk and upper extremities and is usually unresponsive to local and systemic treatment. Recently, several investigators have reported successful treatment with isotretinoin. Herein, we report a case of a patient with disseminate and recurrent infundibulofolliculitis who was successfully treated with potent topical corticosteroids.
