Title : Ulerythema ophryogenes in a Saudi male: A case report


Ulerythema ophryogenes (UO) or keratosis pilaris rubra atrophicans faciei is a disorder of keratinization that primarily affects the face. It manifests as areas of papular erythema that eventually progress to cause alopecia and scarring mostly affecting the outer thirds of the eyebrows. In severe cases, the scalp may be involved. The disease has been linked to a number of conditions, but the definitive etiology remains a mystery. The incidence of this disorder is still unknown. We present a case of UO in a 28-year-old male, the first of its kind in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East Region.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe Ulerythema Ophryogenes
  • Learn how to diagnose Ulerythema Ophryogenes
  • Understand associated syndromes and disorders
  • Discuss possible treatment options
  • Learn how to choose which treatment option for each patient
