Abstract
Pityriasis folliculorum(1) (PF) is a human demodicosis proposed as "primary", caused by the proliferation of Demodex folliculorum (D):(2) it consists of very small, discrete and regularly dispersed follicular scales, involving sebaceous hair follicles, often without visible inflammation. Patients can complain about pruritus, dry, sensitive, irregular or rough skin.(1) Forton et al(3) report that PF is the most frequent demodicosis (54%) compared with papulopustular rosacea, and has a higher demodex density (Dd) (D=61/cm(2) , n=45) tested by "Standardized skin surface biopsy (SSSB)". However, Reflectance Confocal Microscopy (RCM) now shows promising results.(4) This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
