Fox-Fordyce disease

Fox-Fordyce disease
a chronic, usually pruritic disease seen chiefly in women, characterized by small follicular papular eruptions in apocrine gland–bearing areas such as the axillae and groin. It is caused by obstruction and rupture of the intraepidermal portion of the ducts of the glands, which results in alteration of the regional ductal epidermis, apocrine secretory tubule, and adjacent dermis. Called also apocrine miliaria.
