nuchae (also known as "Acne
", "Dermatitis papillaris capillitii", "Folliculitis
", "Folliculitis keloidis nuchae", and "Nuchal keloid acne") is a destructive scarring folliculitis that occurs almost exclusively on the occipital scalp of people of African descent, primarily men. This is mainly because men often cut their hair very low as opposed to women, allowing the hair to prick the occipital scalp and upset it. Acne
nuchae most commonly presents itself in individuals aged 13 to 25. The disease is closely related to pseudofolliculitis barbae and both occur frequently in black men in the military, where it is so common that services often have widely known protocols for management
Treatment of the mixed group of cicatricial alopecias (folliculitis
) may include antimicrobials, isotretinoin, and anti-inflammatory medications.
Tufted folliculitis presents with doll's hair-like bundling of follicular units, and is seen in a wide range of scarring conditions including chronic staphylococcal infection, chronic lupus erythematosus, lichen planopilaris, Graham-Little syndrome, folliculitis decalvans, acne
nuchae, immunobullous disorders, and dissecting cellulitis.
In 1895 he described acne
, which he referred to as "folliculitis nuchae sclerotisans". Among his written works was a comparative diagnostic atlas of skin diseases called "Vergleichend-diagnostischer Atlas der Hautkrankheiten und der Syphilide". Other published works by Ehrmann include:
A related condition, pseudofolliculitis nuchae, occurs on the back of the neck, often along the posterior hairline, when curved hairs are cut short and allowed to grow back into the skin. Left untreated, this can develop into acne

Shortly after taking office in Houston, Hurtt required police to cover up tattoos with long sleeves, if needed. Additionally, he required all facial hair to be removed, citing that it would prevent gas masks to be used effectively. This resulted in a group of African American officers filing a lawsuit claiming that they have skin conditions called Pseudofolliculitis barbae or Acne
nuchae that makes it painful to shave. The city supported Chief Hurtt's new policy and approved $150,000 for legal defense against the suit. The suit was eventually tossed out.
Primary cicatricial alopecias are further classified by the type of inflammatory cells that destroy the hair follicle during the active stage of the disease. The inflammation may predominantly involve lymphocytes or neutrophils. Cicatricial alopecias that predominantly involve lymphocytic inflammation include lichen planopilaris, frontal fibrosing alopecia, central centrifugal alopecia, and pseudopelade (Brocq). Cicatricial alopecias that are due to predominantly neutrophilic inflammation include folliculitis decalvans, tufted folliculitis, and Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp. Sometimes the inflammation shifts from a predominantly neutrophilic process to a lymphocytic process. A cicatricial alopecia with a mixed inflammatory infiltrate is folliculitis
