The flow of sebum transports them to the surface of the skin upon desquamation, maintaining a balance between new and desquamated keratinocytes. However, in comedones, this balance is disturbed, leading to keratinocyte accumulation in the pilosebaceous duct. Hyperproliferation of basal keratinocytes, which line the wall of the infrainfundibulum, plays a central role in this accumulation (6,7). As more keratinous material accumulates, the follicular wall continues to distend and become thinner. Concurrently, sebaceous glands begin to atrophy and are replaced by undifferentiated epithelial cells.
