Cicatricial Alopecia (CA) causes irreversible hair loss and negatively affects self-image and self-esteem of the patient. Cicatricial alopecia leads to permanent damage of the stem cells in the hair follicle bulge. Clinically, there is effacement of folliculer orifices, always in patchy or focal distrubition. A biopsy is confirmative, showing replacement of follicles with fibrotic stellae and either fibrosis or hyalization of surrounding collagen. Cicatricial alopecias are divided into two groups as ”primary” and “secondary” cicatricial alopecias.
