Abstract

VERARDINO, Gustavo Costa; AZULAY-ABULAFIA, Luna; MACEDO, Priscila Marques de  and  JEUNON, Thiago. Pityriasis amiantacea: clinical-dermatoscopic features and microscopy of hair tufts. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.1, pp. 142-145. ISSN 0365-0596.  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.

Keywords : Dermatitis, seborrheic; Dermoscopy; Pityriasis; Psoriasis; Tinea.
