First reported cases of Actinic folliculitis treated successfully with topical retinoid.

Abstract
Actinic Folliculitis (AF) is a rare recurrent seasonal photodermatosis, relatively newly characterised by non pruritic, monomorphic pustules and papules appearing 4 - 24 hours after exposure to sunlight. Lesions usually affect the face but also appear on the upper chest and arms. Resolution normally occurs within 7 - 10 days with cessation of sunlight exposure. AF is resistant to standard treatments used for acne vulgaris and acne rosacea with only oral retinoids previously being reported as effective. We report the first 2 cases of actinic folliculitis responding extremely effectively to a topical retinoid.
