Follicular mucinosis in association with a melanocytic nevus. A report of two cases

Jordaan H.F. (1987)


The recognition of follicular mucinosis as a distinct entity is accorded to Pinkus in a 1957 paper under the title Alopecia mucinosa. A primary and a secondary form is recognised. Recently secondary follicular mucinosis was observed in our laboratory in association with an intradermal and a compound melanocytic nevus. To my knowledge this association has not been reported previously.
