Favre–Racouchot syndrome (FRS) is a disorder consisting of solar elastosis with the presence of multiple cysts and open comedones. Although the exact mechanism of the condition is not known, FRS has been specifically connected to sun exposure, smoking and radiation exposure. The histological changes present in FRS reveal an atrophic epidermis and large masses of keratinous material, causing follicular plugging, as well as solar elastotic changes and possible basophilic degeneration of connective tissue. Herein, we report an unusual case of FRS concurrent with chronic granulomatous reaction and review relevant published works.
