Guest - I would ask for special stains for microorganisms in the first instance. Edited May 8, 2014 by Guest

Dr. Mona Abdel-Halim - HIV esinophilic folliculitis after exclusion of fungal infection.

Robledo F. Rocha - It could be the eosinophilic pustular folliculitis reported by Ofugi. Due to case history of[/size][/font][/color] HIV immunosuppression, I think it would be better termed HIV-associated eosinophilic folliculitis. Edited May 8, 2014 by Guest

Eman El-Nabarawy - HIV associated eosinophilic folliculitis.
Mark A. Hurt MD - Agree, it looks like Eosinophilic Pustular Folliculitis (actually infundibulitis) of HIV Disease.
Dr. Hafeez Diwan - Agreed. Eosinophilic folliculitis. Fungal stains were negative.
