Summaries for Eosinophilic Pustular Folliculitis

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (epf) is a skin disorder characterized by recurring itchy, red or skin-colored bumps and pustules (bumps containing pus). the condition is named after the fact that skin biopsies of this disorder find eosinophils (a type of immune cell) around hair follicles. the papules mostly appear on the face, scalp, neck and trunk and may persist for weeks or months. epf affects males more than females. there are several variants of epf including classic eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (mainly occurring in adults in japan); hiv-associated epf, also referred to as immunosuppression-associated epf; and infantile epf (with onset from birth or within the first year of life). whether these are distinct disorders rather than variants of one disorder is controversial, partly because the underlying cause of efp is not known. several treatments have been described with variable results, including various oral or topical medications and phototherapy. in patients with hiv-associated disease, antiretroviral therapy tends to greatly diminish symptoms or even eliminate the condition. last updated: 12/5/2016

MalaCards based summary : Eosinophilic Pustular Folliculitis, also known as eosinophilic folliculitis, is related to folliculitis and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. An important gene associated with Eosinophilic Pustular Folliculitis is IFNG (Interferon Gamma), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers and Innate Lymphoid Cell Differentiation Pathways. Affiliated tissues include skin, testes and bone.
