DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Chronic, follicular and perifollicular necrotizing inflammation of unknown origin. It is assumed that due to pathological cornification processes in the follicleostium, the hair breaks through the follicular epithelium and thus maintains a chronic inflammation. S.a.u. Hyperkeratosis follicularis uraemica. The disease has an eminently chronic, year-long course.
