Chronic non-scarring folliculitis is not a rare scalp dermatosis, but the diagnosis is challenging because of overlapping features, both clinically and histopathologically. An increased incidence among male patients and an association with oily scalp without seborrheic dermatitis or acne vulgaris, make chronic non-scarring folliculitis a unique entity. Whether it constitutes a disease entity or a variant of acne vulgaris, it deserves more thorough investigations.
