Abstract

Tufted hair folliculitis was first described by Smith and Sanderson in 1978. This is a rare progressive pattern of scarring alopecia that affects the scalp. The cause of this disorder is unknown. Staphylococcal organisms are frequently found in the lesion, although their role in the pathogenesis is still unclear. No widely accepted treatment regimen exists. Tufted hair folliculitis in locations other than the scalp, and bilaterally on the cheeks, is an unusual presentation.
