Radiation-induced temporary alopecia after embolization of cerebral aneurysm
Thu, 30 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Indian Journal of Dermatology
Shyam Verma, CR Srinivas, Maria ThomasIndian Journal of Dermatology 2014 59(6):633-633A 47-year-old Indian woman with dark hair developed dramatic alopecia of the occipito-vertical area two weeks after a fluoroscopically-guided endovascular procedure for treatment of cerebral aneurysm. There was spontaneous repopulation of hair in 14 weeks. Neuro-radiological intervention procedures are becoming commoner by the day in India, and the rare but documented possibility of such reactions occurring in patients should be kept in mind by the treating surgeon as well as dermatologist. Necessary counseling regarding this uncommon side-effect is of essence, especially when the radiation dose exceeds 3 Gy. We believe this is the first case ever reported in Indian dermatology literature. (Source: Indian...

Pathologic Diagnosis of Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia on Horizontal Sections
Tue, 28 Oct 2014 00:40:23 +0100 | The American Journal of Dermatopathology
Abstract:The pathologic findings in Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) have not been studied systematically in horizontal sections. Our objective was to establish the pathologic features, and their frequency in horizontal sections of scalp biopsies obtained from patients with clinically and histologically proven CCCA. Serial horizontal sections of 51 cases were evaluated retrospectively. All biopsies were assessed at 4 levels and at least on 24 horizontal sections. The most common pathologic findings were follicular miniaturization (81% of the cases); premature desquamation of the inner root sheath (96%), focal preservation of the sebaceous glands (94%), which in most of these cases appeared as surrounding “in a hug” an intact vellus follicle; compound follicular structure...
