MalaCards based summary: Folliculitis, also known as seborrheic dermatitis of scalp, is related to strongyloidiasis and dermatitis. An important gene associated with Folliculitis is DEFB4A (defensin, beta 4A), and among its related pathways are Immune response IL 12 signaling pathway and IL-15 Signaling and its Primary Biological Effects in Different Immune Cell Types. The compounds 5-oxoete and natalizumab have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, neutrophil and bone marrow, and related mouse phenotypes are respiratory system and digestive/alimentary.
