ACNE NECROTICA MILIARIS OF THE SCALP

Sabouraud regarded the condition as an abortive or diminutive form of acne necrotica and showed that the histologic changes were comparable in the two conditions and that Staphylococcus aureus played a role in the etiology, as evidenced by cultures and histologic examination of the crusts. Expand
