Two cases of erosive pustular dermatosis of the scalp in patients with Chronic myelogenous leukemia and Polycythemia, treated with Hydroxyurea, are described. The erosive, and pustular lesions and crusts were located at the scalp with intense itching. Investigations for possible infection etiology were negative. Histological examination revealed a non-specific inflammatory picture. The possible topical and systemic therapy is described and the importance of the surgical trauma in the pathogenesis of this disorder is underlined.
