Furunculosis

A furuncle or boil or furunculosis is a deep folliculitis, which is infection of the hair follicle, with acumulation of pus and dead tissue. Most human furuncules are caused by coagulase positive Staphylococcus ureus  because of the ability of this organism to produce coagulase, which is an enzyme that clots blood. S aureus can infect any organ of the body and most common only the skin.
