Pseudolymphomatous folliculitis (PLF), which clinically mimicks cutaneous lymphoma, is a rare manifestation of cutaneous pseudolymphoma and cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia. Here, we report on a 45-year-old Japanese woman with PLF. Dermoscopy findings revealed prominent arborizing vessels with small perifollicular and follicular yellowish spots and follicular red dots. A biopsy specimen also revealed dense lymphocytes, especially CD1a+ cells, infiltrated around the hair follicles. Without any additional treatment, the patient's nodule rapidly decreased. The presented case suggests that typical dermoscopy findings could be a possible supportive tool for the diagnosis of PLF.
