Abstract

A 13-year-old boy with typical peeling skin syndrome (PSS) is described. The clinical picture corresponded to the inflammatory variant of PSS (type B). In addition, the patient had gross and microscopic hair anomalies such as trichorrhexis invaginata-like changes, irregular hair shaft torsions and moniliform hair shaft diameter reductions. The observed dysmorphic hair changes are discussed and interpreted as being an integral component of the dermatosis in this case. To the best of our knowledge, such hair anomalies have not yet been described in PSS.
