Familial fibrosing frontal alopecia in six sisters,

Abstract White fibrous papulosis of the neck is a rare entity, with fewer than 50 cases described. It is a benign pathology whose main interest lies in its broad differential diagnosis, especially with pseudoxanthoma elasticum. The authors report the case of a 77-year-old woman with multiple yellow-white monomorphic papules on the posterior cervical region, with years of evolution. Cutaneous biopsy revealed a nodular area in the superficial and middle reticular dermis, with slight thickening of the collagen fibers and focally enlarged elastic fibers, aspects highlighted in the Verhoeff staining that additionally showed absence of elastic fibers in the papillary dermis.

Abstract Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a difficult to treat condition leading to permanent hair loss and scarring. Pathobiologically, LPP shows T- cell mediated interferon-γ driven loss of keratin 15 (K15) positive hair follicle (HF) epithelial stem cells (eHFSCs) due to immune privilege (IP) collapse and pathological epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). This exhausts the eHFSC pool; impacting the HF's capacity to regenerate and cycle and ultimately resulting in HF destruction, fibrosis and scarring. PMID: 32471007 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
