Gram Negative Folliculitis Gram negative folliculitis is an acne-like disorder caused by a bacterial infection.
Gram negative bacteria include Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia marescens, Klebsiella and Proteus species.
The term "Gram negative" refers to the staining pattern of the organisms in the laboratory.
Gram negative folliculitis differs from acne in the following ways: Most of the lesions are pustules with relatively few papules and comedones and it may result from long-term treatment with tetracycline antibiotics.
