Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp

R. Caputo, S. Veraldi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Three cases of erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp are reported. In all patients the dermatosis was characterized by pustular, erosive, and crusted lesions; in addition, two patients had areas of scarring alopecia. The results of laboratory tests, bacteriologic and mycologic investigations, and histopathologic examination were nondiagnostic. Although erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp is characterized by a nonpathognomonic clinical and histopathologic picture, it probably represents a disease entity.
