Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a clinically distinct variant of lichen planopilaris. It has been associated with immune-mediated disorders and dermatologic disorders, such as vitiligo. We present a patient with a longstanding history of common variable immunodeficiency who developed frontal fibrosing alopecia. Increased research into the pathophysiologic mechanisms of associated immune-mediated conditions can shed light into the etiology of FFA.
