SATO, Mário Teruo et al. Loose anagen hair syndrome associated with macular dystrophy: a family description. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.6, pp.725-731. ISSN 0365-0596.

The article describes a family with loose anagen hair syndrome (LAHS) associated with macular dystrophy. Complete dermatological and ophthalmological exams, and hair examination under optical and electron microscopy were performed in eleven index cases. Two individuals demonstrated hair findings with LAHS without ocular problems. Within the four cases with ocular problems, two sisters presented with LAHS and pigmentary dispersion on the retina with macular coloboma. Two brothers presented with LAHS and pigmentary dispersion on the retina without macular coloboma. The findings suggest that this new association is a disorder among the ectodermal dysplasia.

Keywords : retinal degeneration; ectodermal dysplasia; hypotrichosis.
