Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis of infancy (EPFI) is an uncommon dermatosis of unknown etiology occurring in newborns and infants. EPFI presents with recurrent crops of pruritic, follicular pustules, most commonly on the scalp; and resolving in one to four weeks. Treatment is symptomatic. Topical corticosteroids appear to be effective in hastening the lesions' resolution. We present a clinical case of a 10-year-old schoolboy who, after being biopsied in the dermatology service, finally received this diagnosis.
