definition

Rare developmental abnormality of the skin in which grouped hair follicles filled with horny plugs constitute a prominent feature. Groups of comedones in a linear or band-like distribution appear on any part of the body, with the face, neck, upper arm, chest, and abdomen as predilection sites. Although usually present at birth they can present later in life.
