50 male patients, diagnosed to have chronic folliculitis of legs (CFL), were included in a clinico epidemiological study. CFL affected predominantly young adults of the age group of 16 - 25 years. Severe pruritus was associated in 86% of patients with CFL, and this symptom preceded the onset of new lesions. Follicular papules were seen more often than pustules in 58% of patients. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated in 72.5%. The lesions were confined to both legs in 50%, extending upto thigh in 28% and in legs, thighs and forearms in 10% of individuals studied.
