Staphylococcus aureus and chronic folliculocentric pustuloses of the scalp - cause or association?

Staphylococcus aureus and chronic folliculocentric pustuloses of the scalp - cause or association?
Staphylococcus aureus and chronic folliculocentric pustuloses of the scalp - cause or association?
The aetiology of chronic scalp folliculitis (SF), folliculitis decalvans (FD), tufted folliculitis (TF), acne nuchae keloidalis (ANK), dissecting cellulitis (DCS) and other similar entities is not well established but these conditions share similar features including chronic scarring folliculocentric pustules localised to the scalp, response to antibiotic therapy and many show the presence of Staphylococcus aureus (SA). We have collectively termed these conditions chronic folliculocentric pustuloses of the scalp (CFPS), to emphasise their overlapping characteristics which suggest that there may be overlapping components in their pathogenesis, but acknowledge that individually there are distinguishing features which would imply that further contribution from distinct aetiological factors are likely to account for clinical variation in phenotype This article is protected by copyright.

Abstract

The aetiology of chronic scalp folliculitis (SF), folliculitis decalvans (FD), tufted folliculitis (TF), acne nuchae keloidalis (ANK), dissecting cellulitis (DCS) and other similar entities is not well established but these conditions share similar features including chronic scarring folliculocentric pustules localised to the scalp, response to antibiotic therapy and many show the presence of Staphylococcus aureus (SA). We have collectively termed these conditions chronic folliculocentric pustuloses of the scalp (CFPS), to emphasise their overlapping characteristics which suggest that there may be overlapping components in their pathogenesis, but acknowledge that individually there are distinguishing features which would imply that further contribution from distinct aetiological factors are likely to account for clinical variation in phenotype This article is protected by copyright.
