Fox-Fordyce Disease in the Male: Review of Literature and Report of Case

Fox-Fordyce Disease in the Male: Review of Literature and Report of Case Abstract Fox-Fordyce disease in males is infrequent but not rare. While the total number of cases of this entity reported in the literature does not allow significant statistical analysis, the impression left by early authors concerning the extreme rarity of the condition in the male is not warranted. According to estimates by Neumark1 and Schwank,2 10% of the reported cases of Fox-Fordyce disease occurred in male patients. Del Vivo3 found that in 14 of 132 cases collected from the literature the patients were males. One of the first two cases recorded by Fox and Fordyce4 was that of a young boy. Dohi5 stated that in the first five cases reported in Japan two of the patients were males.

Abstract

Abstract Fox-Fordyce disease in males is infrequent but not rare. While the total number of cases of this entity reported in the literature does not allow significant statistical analysis, the impression left by early authors concerning the extreme rarity of the condition in the male is not warranted. According to estimates by Neumark1 and Schwank,2 10% of the reported cases of Fox-Fordyce disease occurred in male patients. Del Vivo3 found that in 14 of 132 cases collected from the literature the patients were males. One of the first two cases recorded by Fox and Fordyce4 was that of a young boy. Dohi5 stated that in the first five cases reported in Japan two of the patients were males.
