We present a 60-year-old woman with a four-year history of non-healing scalp erosions, progressive skin atrophy, and scarring alopecia despite intravenous antibiotics and intraoperative debridement who improved with systemic glucocorticoids.

The inflammatory response was considered to be the result of Trombiculidae bites.

A breakdown of immune privilege of the hair follicle resulting in the development of an admixed immune of antigen presenting cells (APCs), CD4+ and CD8+ T lymphocytes infiltrate is hypothesized to represent an important driver of AA(Pratt et al., 2017). A deficiency in T regulatory cells (Tregs) might facilitate the occurrence of this immune privilege breakdown. A growing corpus of data in animal models but also from blood and skin in AA patients emphasized the likely key role of Tregs in AA pathomechanisms(Conteduca et al., 2014, Hamed...
