AWM Au 區慧明, PT Chan 陳寶德, FMF Cheung 張文鳳

A 26-year-old Chinese man presented with annular plaques with pustular borders over both cheeks for 6 months. He was treated empirically with topical steroid and systemic anti-fungals without improvement. Incisional biopsy of the right cheek lesion showed features compatible with eosinophilic pustular folliculitis. This patient has no evidence of immunodeficiency. Clinically, this is a case of Ofuji's disease. He responded well to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
