Abstract

SMIDARLE, Débora Nathália; SEIDL, Mauren  and  SILVA, Roberta Castilhos da. Frontal fibrosing alopecia: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.6, pp. 879-882. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000600015.

Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a kind of progressive and frequently irreversible cicatricial alopecia marked by a lichenoid infiltrate in histology. Since its first description, in 1994, in Australia, some cases have been documented all over the world. The article reports, for the second time in the medical literature, a Brazilian case and reviews the main aspects of this dermatosis.
