Ofujis disease

Ofuji's disease --> eosinophilic pustular folliculitis

A dermatosis characterised by sterile pruritic papules and pustules that coalesce to form plaques with papulovesicular borders; spontaneous exacerbations and remissions may be accompanied by peripheral leukocytosis, eosinophilia, or both, and may result in eventual destruction of hair follicles and formation of eosinophilic abscesses. The disease has been reported in aIDS, and a possibly separate form of eosinophilic pustular folliculitis occurs in infants.

Synonym: ofuji's disease.
