          Abstract

          Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans is a rare, X-linked disorder characterized by scarring alopecia of the scalp and eyebrows in the setting of widespread keratosis pilaris. Less frequent associations are ocular abnormalities and palmoplantar keratoderma. Acne keloidalis nuchae has previously been described in one patient with keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans. We report another case of keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans with acne keloidalis nuchae and tufted hair folliculitis, thus further establishing this association.
