Tinea Amiantacea

definition

Reaction of the scalp characterized by masses of sticky silvery scales attached in layers to the shafts of the hairs which they surround. The underlying scalp may show erythema. The majority of patients notice some hair loss in areas of severe scaling. This condition may complicate seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, lichen simplex or atopic dermatitis. Often, though, it appears without evident cause.
