Atrichia with Papular Lesions

Non-Scarring Hair Loss


Presentation

  • In the present study, the coding sequence of the hairless gene was compared by reverse transcription-PCR in fibroblast cell lines derived from an affected patient and an unrelated individual.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present study, we describe two novel deletion mutations in exons 2 and 8 of the human hairless gene leading to frameshift and downstream premature termination codons in two consanguineous Pakistani families affected with atrichia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 9-year-old boy presented with sparse hair over his body and with a history of losing his hair soon after birth. Multiple skin-colored papules were observed over the scalp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The case present- ed here is an unusual presentation of this disease, with alopecia and with papules limited only ...[mafiadoc.com]
  • This rare variant of ectodermal dysplasia typically presents with shedding of normal fetal hair within the first three months. Eyelashes are typically spared.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nail Abnormality

Alopecia
  • Accurate discrimination between APL and alopecia universalis should prevent unnecessary treatment of patients affected with APL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We have previously shown that this disorder results from a deleterious mutation in the human hairless gene, a gene also involved in the pathogenesis of a related but clinically distinct form of congenital alopecia, termed alopecia universalis congenita[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The establishment of the diagnostic criteria for APL has triggered the identification of a large number of APL patients among those suspected to suffer from alopecia universalis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A related but clinically distinct form of alopecia, known as alopecia universalis (OMIM 203655), has recently been found to be associated with a mutation in the human hairless gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sparse Hair
  • A 9-year-old boy presented with sparse hair over his body and with a history of losing his hair soon after birth. Multiple skin-colored papules were observed over the scalp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He had sparse hairs over the eyebrow and eyelashes. He complained of multiple, raised lesions over the face and upper trunk for three years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sparse Eyelashes
  • Examination of the fifteen individuals alive revealed absent hair from the scalp and eyebrows, absent pubic and axillary hair, and sparse eyelashes on the upper eyelid in 10 subjects.[cags.org.ae]
  • A one-and-a-half-month-old male baby was brought by his maternal grandmother with complaints of frontoparietal scalp hair recession, sparse eyelashes and eyebrows [Figure 1].[idoj.in]
  • CASE REPORT A one-and-a-half-month-old male baby was brought by his maternal grandmother with complaints of frontoparietal scalp hair recession, sparse eyelashes and eyebrows [ Figure 1 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pachyonychia
  • […] dominant fashion without other apparent anomalies; however, in most cases they occur sporadically. [3] Genodermatosis-associated milia have been reported in association with basal cell nevus syndrome, [4] Rombo syndrome, [5] Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, [6] pachyonychia[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Primary milia are also found in several genodermatoses, including but not limited to pachyonychia congenita type 2, basal cell nevus syndrome, Rombo syndrome, Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, Bazex-Dupre-Christol syndrome, atrichia with papular lesions, and[healio.com]

Vesicular Rash
  • Physicians should have a high index of clinical suspicion for HZAE in any patient presenting with a vesicular rash and concomitant neurologic impairments while systemically immunosuppressed.[medworm.com]
Suggestibility
  • HR mutant E583V exhibited normal corepressor activity, suggesting that it may not be pathogenic.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This result suggests that the TRID2 domain either is dispensable in the hr-TR interaction or is not involved in the pathogenesis of APL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our case suggests an autosomal-dominant inheritance pattern, while previous reports have shown autosomal recessive inheritance pattern.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • From these findings, it was suggested that the cystic lesions might have originated from immature or incomplete hair follicles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Most cases of atrichia with papular lesions have been reported in consanguineous families residing in small geographical regions, but the increasing number of sporadic cases of unrelated individuals suggests that atrichia with papular lesions is more[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Accurate discrimination between APL and alopecia universalis should prevent unnecessary treatment of patients affected with APL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or treatment.[orpha.net]
  • Collectively, we anticipate that an increased recognition of this disorder will result in more accurate diagnosis and the sparing of unnecessarily treatment to patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • There are no treatments for the hair loss. The disease does not lead to an early death or cause other problems. Speak with your doctor about the best personal plan of action.[diseaseinfosearch.org]

Pathophysiology

  • A powerful approach to advance our understanding of the pathophysiology of hair loss is to identify the genes underlying isolated and syndromic forms of hair loss.[jpma.org.pk]
  • Since the original description of a cDNA for the human hairless gene30 a year ago, the possibility that this gene product may be involved in the pathophysiology of AGA has been considered.[kundoc.com]
