Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.1, pp.142-145. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000100021.
Pityriasis Amiantacea, also known as pseudotinea amiantacea, is a clinical syndrome which affects the scalp, having a reaction pattern reported to occur in several inflammatory dermatoses. The authors seek to establish the correlation between its clinical, dermoscopic and light microscopy features through the analysis of scale- encrusted hair tufts submitted to histological processing.
