Abstract

Acne keloidalis is a chronic inflammatory process that involves hair follicles of the nape of the neck and leads to hypertrophic scarring. In all references, it is noticed that this process occurs only in males after puberty and is especially seen in the black race. In this case, we report a 31-year-old white woman who had hypertrophic papules in the nape of her neck since 10 years ago and in pathological examination, the diagnosis of acne keloidalis was confirmed.
