There are several variants of eosinophilic folliculitis, which is also known as ‘eosinophilic pustular folliculitis' or ‘Ofuji disease'. The name is due to skin biopsy finding of eosinophils (a type of immune cell) around hair follicles.
Eosinophilic folliculitis (EF) is an idiopathic, extremely pruritic, papular follicular eruption of the upper trunk, face, neck, and proximal extremities occurring in advanced HIV disease and/or after initiation of highly active antiretroviral therapy, often associated with peripheral eosinophilia. EF occurring in HIV disease is different from that of Ofuji's disease.
The signs and symptoms of folliculitis vary, depending on the type of infection. In superficial forms of the disorder, small pimples develop around one or more hair follicles
