Acne Keloidalis Nuchae

A nice case of AKN I saw today. Some consider this a condition similar to pseudofolliculitis in people with keloidal tendancy. The recent findings of Sperling et al indicate that AK is a primary form of scarring alopecia. I have started him on topical isotretinoin and doxycycline. I have called him for intra lesional triamcinolone next week.
