M. Lai, L. Atzori, F. Rongioletti, M A Brundu, A. Lappi
Erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp (EPDS) is a rare inflammatory disease that predominantly affects elderly people, with a chronic course and long-term management.1 Sterile pustules, superficial erosions and crusted lesions on atrophic skin, resulting in cicatricial alopecia, characterize the typical clinical presentation. 1-3 Triggering factors include several drugs, actinic damage, local trauma, surgery, and physical or chemical procedures for actinic keratosis.4-6 To the best of our knowledge, no previous association with Kindler syndrome was found in the literature.
