Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Post-menopausal frontal fibrosing alopecia (PFFA) has become an increasingly recognized distinct clinical entity in recent years. Most cases have been reported from Australia; however, it seems likely that the condition is under-recognized. PFFA has similarities to lichen planopilaris but is differentiated by a distinctive symmetrical fronto-temporal distribution and progressive course. We report two cases from the UK and review the literature.
