PEREZ-ELIZONDO, Antonio David  and  LOPEZ-LARA, Norma Deyanira. Primary follicular mucinosis: simulating a tinea corporis. Rev. bol. ped. [online]. 2015, vol.54, n.3, pp.130-132. ISSN 1024-0675.

Follicular mucinosis is characterized by mucin deposits within the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It can occur as a primary idiopathic benign disorder; it can; or it can arise as a secondary symptom of a malignant disorder, most commonly mycosis fungoides. Youth and localization in a single area used to be regarded as indicative of the benign nature of follicular mucinosis. We report the case of a 10 -year old girl who presented with a 5- months history of a multiple, slightly pruritic, erythematous patches on her face, neck and chest. Different local treatments were ineffective. Overall, she was healthy. Histopathological examination of the lesion showed the typical histological picture of follicular mucinosis.
