Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a rare dermatosis of unknown cause. It is characterized by recurrent crops of sterile, pruritic, follicular papulopustules on the face, trunk, and extremities. Although various treatments have been attempted for EPF, including systemic corticosteroid dapsone, cetrizine, UVB phototherapy, as well as cyclosporin, no uniformly effective treatment has been found. We describe a 20-year-old man with long standing EPF which was resistant to various treatments, but who responded dramatically to indomethacin.
