Eosinophilic pustular folliculitis (EPF) is a recurrent inflammatory dermatosis primarily involving hair follicles. Several subtypes of EPF have been described: Classic EPF, infantile EPF, and immunosuppression-associated EPF. Although classic EPF has a predilection for face, involvement of hairless areas such as palms and soles has been reported frequently. There are rare case reports of mucosal EPF. Herein, we report a woman who presented with classic EPF involving the lip and oral mucosa.
