Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Lipedematous alopecia and lipedematous scalp are two similar unusual conditions mostly affecting healthy black women. Here, we report one such case with emphasis on clinical and histologic findings, and review the literature on the subject. The presence of ecstatic lymphatic vessels with hair loss was particularly emphasized. Our findings suggest a lessened role of racial factors but confirm the sex implications and significance of lymphangiectatic vessels in development of alopecia in this condition.
