Eruptive vellus hair cysts (EVHCs) are characterized by asymptomatic, follicular, comedonelike papules usually located on the anterior chest and abdomen. We present a pediatric case of EVHC associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder that partially responded to calcipotriene cream within 2 months. Our aim is to refamiliarize clinicians with a common albeit frequently unrecognized disorder of vellus hair follicles. Cutis. 2009;84:295-298.
