Scarring alopecia (cicatricial alopecia) is known for rare inflammatory scalp disorders that destroy the hair follicle, replace it with scar tissue and cause permanent hair loss. Hair will not regrow once the follicle is destroyed. It is very important to begin proper treatment which controls inflammatory process and save surrounding follicles before they are destroyed. Cicatricial alopecias are not contagious. Unlike alopecia areata, cicatricial alopecias are also known for its unpredictable behaviour and difficult to treat. According to trigger factors, cicatricial alopecias are classified as primary cicatricial alopecia and secondary cicatricial alopecia
. Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), Lichen planopilaris (LPP), Frontal fibrosing alopecia, Pseudopelade of brocq, Central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA), Folliculitis decalvans and Folliculitis (acne) keloidalis are known as primary cicatricial alopecia.
However cicatricial alopecia due to external injury, severe infections, burns, radiation, tumors are known as secondary cicatricial alopecia. In such conditions destruction of the hair follicle is incidental to a non-follicle-directed process. Medical science does not know the perfect cause or triggers for cicatricial alopecia. Most common signs are redness on affected area, inflammation, scaling, hyper or hypo pigmentation, bare and smooth skin without pores, and pustules in some cases.
How are cicatricial alopecias diagnosed?
Making a diagnosis of cicatricial alopecia is always challenging. Clinical examination of the scalp is important and crucial to make a diagnosis. Initially it looks like alopecia areata. A doctor may find few signs or symptoms on scalp like itching, burning, pain, tenderness, tingling, redness, inflammation scaling and sometimes pustules. In some cases, cicatricial alopecia spreads very slowly, without symptoms, and is unnoticed for long periods. In other cases, it could be rapidly progressive associated with severe itching, burning and pain. Cicatricial alopecia is not contagious. For making a final diagnosis, scalp biopsy is very useful.
