Dissecting cellulitis of the scalp (DCS) is a suppurative, neutrophillic dermatosis. Therapies typically provide short-term improvement and include antibiotics, prednisone, and isotretinoin, as well as radiation, surgical excision, and laser ablation. The authors report the use of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker, adalimumab, to successfully treat a 39-year-old male with a long-standing history of DCS.
