Disease relevance of Folliculitis


High impact information on Folliculitis


Chemical compound and disease context of Folliculitis


Anatomical context of Folliculitis

  • Neutrophil folliculitis and serum androgen levels [15].
  • We propose the term "necrotizing eosinophilic folliculitis," and suggest that the basis of this novel form of EF is an unrepressed T-helper lymphocyte type 2 (Th2)-dominant response to various epicutaneous stimuli in patients with atopy, the prototypic immune dysregulatory state associated with a Th2-dominant cytokine milieu [16].

Gene context of Folliculitis

  • Role of Th2 cytokines, RANTES and eotaxin in AIDS-associated eosinophilic folliculitis [17].
  • EGFR is widely expressed in skin and skin biopsies in areas involved with the characteristic cetuximab eruption demonstrate neutrophilic folliculitis [18].
  • We report a case of folliculitis decalvans, a rare chronic follicular inflammatory process of bacterial origin that is extremely resistant to treatment, in a patient with HAM/TSP [19].
  • We encountered a patient who developed P. aeruginosa folliculitis subsequent to the use of a loofah sponge grossly contaminated with the same P. aeruginosa strain (serotype 10; pyocin type 1/a 4,b) that was recovered from her skin lesions [20].
  • The lesional skin of five patients with eosinophilic pustular folliculitis was examined using several monoclonal antibodies including a variety of anti-leukocyte adhesion molecules: endothelial cell adhesion molecule 1, vascular cell adhesion molecule 1, and intercellular adhesion molecule 1, by means of immunohistochemical techniques [21].
