Synopsis

Pyoderma faciale is an acute, inflammatory eruption almost exclusively seen on the face of young women. Some authors have related this eruption to rosacea, thus naming it rosacea fulminans. It is more likely related to acne, as most women affected with this disease had preceding adult acne. This is an uncommon disease, manifested by the sudden onset of large, tender lesions on the face. Systemic symptoms are mild.
