Farida Tabri.

Abstract
Furunculosis is an acute infection that occur in the hair follicles, causing abscess formation with pus and necrotic tissue accumulation within. Recurrent furunculosis is defined as having three or more recurring infection within 12 months. Several factors that may contribute are family history of recurrent furunculosis, anemia, prior antibiotic therapy, diabetes mellitus, history of previous hospitalization, multiple lesion, poor hygiene, and other related diseases. Current therapy for recurrent furunculosis are both difficult and often show poor result. Antibiotics are recommended if there are signs of severe infection, such as multiple affected skin areas or the infection progressed quickly.
We reported a case of male infant aged four months old and was diagnosed with recurrent furunculosis due to Klebsiella pneumonia infection. A combination of systemic cefadroxil and metronidazole treatment showed good response.

Key words: antibiotics, furunculosis, recurrent
