Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is an inflammatory hair disorder that is characterized by scarring hair loss, mostly affecting the vertex and parietal areas of the scalp. Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is considered a particular form of LPP, primarily affecting the hair follicles in the frontotemporal area of the scalp, with the hairline recession and eyebrow loss. There are case reports of FFA with concomitant involvement of facial vellus, characterized by roughening of the facial skin. We report five cases of facial vellus hair involvement in LPP, in the absence of other sites of disease activity...

Woolly hair nevus is a rarely acquired disorder of the scalp hair with well-circumscribed patch of curly and unruly hairs which are smaller in diameter than normal surrounding hair. We report a case of progressively evolving multiple woolly hair nevi in a 10-year-old child. Trichoscopy of unruly hairs showed abnormal kinking of hair shafts. Varying diameters of a single hair shaft, damaged cuticle, and trichorrhexis nodosa-like features were observed on hair microscopy. Histopathology showed abnormal bending of hair follicle above the hair bulb and irregularities of inner root sheath near the bulb at the bending...

Since Quinquaud's original report of folliculitis decalvans (FD), further clinical variants have been described on the basis of common histopathological and microbiological findings. Histopathology reveals a neutrophilic primary scarring alopecia, and microbiological studies invariably reveal pathogenic strains of Staphylococcus aureus . The presence of thickening of lesional skin in FD has been previously described. We report a new presentation of FD, clinically mimicking linear circumscribed scleroderma of the scalp...

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) represents a distinctive condition with a marginal scarring alopecia along the frontal and temporal hairline. Since its original description, the condition has been recognized to represent a more generalized than localized process, with extension beyond the frontotemporal hairline to include the parieto-occipital hairline and involve peculiar facial papules as evidence of facial vellus hair involvement and loss of peripheral body hair. Finally, the association of FFA with oral lichen planus, nail involvement, and concomitant lichen planopilaris (LPP) points to a close relationship to lichen planus...

We report a patient with frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), in whom autologous hair transplantation was successfully performed despite evidence of active disease. Since the underlying pathology of FFA is usually lichen planopilaris, reservations, and caveats have been expressed with respect to the risk of köbnerization phenomena following hair transplantation surgery. An important question that arises is how the lichenoid tissue reaction pattern is generated around the hair follicles in FFA. Follicles with some form of damage or malfunction might express cytokine profiles that attract inflammatory cells to assist in damage repair or in the initiation of apoptosis-mediated organ deletion...

Context: Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is a primary cicatricial alopecia characterized by progressive recession of frontal, and often temporoparietal, hairline mainly in postmenopausal women. Currently, there are no guidelines or proposed evidence-based treatment for FFA. Aims: The aim of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the effect and safety of intralesional triamcinolone acetonide injections (ITAIs) either as monotherapy or as concomitant treatment in the management of hairline recession in FFA...

Introduction: Hair loss is a common and distressing clinical complaint in the dermatology clinics. Common causes of hair loss in children include alopecia areata, tinea capitis, traction alopecia, and trichotillomania. Newly, trichoscopy allows differential diagnosis of hair loss in most cases and allows visualization of hair shafts and scalps without the need of removing hair. Objective: The main objective is to compare the different trichoscopic features of common causes of patchy hair in children loss including tinea capitis, alopecia areata, traction alopecia, and trichotillomania...

Valproate is a drug used in the treatment of various seizure disorders, bipolar disorder, migraine prophylaxis, and off label in many indications by various specialists. The common adverse drug reactions reported on valproate administration are tremor, weight gain, gastrointestinal disturbances, liver dysfunction, metabolic acidosis, thrombocytopenia, and hair loss. An internet search with keywords "valproate" and "hair" was done on Google Search and PubMed for articles related to the topic...

Trichoscopy is the term coined for the use of dermatoscope for the evaluation of hair and scalp. Dermatologists involved in the management of hair and scalp disorders have discovered dermatoscope to be useful in their daily clinical practice, and expert studies suggest that dermoscopy may improve diagnostic capability beyond simple clinical inspection. Therefore, trichoscopy has gained popularity as a tool in the differential diagnosis of hair and scalp disorders. Despite the enthusiasm emerging with its establishment as a valuable dermatologic tool, caution is warranted not to elevate trichoscopy to something like a fetish status...

Hypertrichosis is described as an increased hair growth on any part or over whole body in comparison to persons of the same age, sex, and race which is independent of androgen excess. It may be localized and generalized or alternatively acquired and congenital forms. The acquired localized hypertrichosis has been associated with various causes including local trauma, chronic irritation, inflammation, occlusion by cast, and drugs. Here, we report a case of 2½-month-old healthy infant presenting with localized area of hypertrichosis over anterolateral aspect of the left thigh which was confined to the site of vaccination...

Trichothiodystrophy (TTD) is characterized by the common feature of sulfur-deficient brittle hair associated with a constellation of neuroectodermal symptoms. There is a wide phenotypic variation in the severity; ranging from isolated hair defect to multiple neuroectodermal symptoms such as photosensitivity, ichthyosis, intellectual impairment, decreased fertility, and short stature. This case report describes TTD in two sisters with only hair fragility and no other associated feature. This case highlights the variable clinical presentation of TTD and the need for regular follow-up in such patients for an early detection of any neurological, physical, and sexual impairment...

Alopecia areata (AA) is a dermatologic disease that can be seen in all age groups with nonscarring hair loss. While the causes of AA are suggested to be the role of genetic, psychological stresses, cellular and humoral immunity, and endocrine and neural factors, the underlying cause is not fully known. Psychiatric diseases are frequently reported in many studies in patients with AA. In this report, children with AA and psychiatric evaluation of them and the prominence of psychiatric evaluation in AA were discussed; AA and posttraumatic stress disorder were reviewed in the light of the relevant literature...

Alopecia of the lower limbs is a rarely reported entity. Friction due to footwear, socks, and tight clothing is one of the causes of lower limb alopecia. The typical site of involvement and improvement after removal of triggering factor are an important clue to the diagnosis. Alopecia areata remains a close differential, and dermoscopy/trichoscopy can serve as an adjunctive aid in the diagnosis.
