We presented a one year-old-boy with a linear hypotrichotic area over the occipital region that was extending to the temporo-parietal regions bilaterally. There were also bilateral localized triangular alopecic areas of diminished hairover the fronto-temporo-parietal regions. Based on the clinical examination findings of all the hypotrichotic patches, the diagnoses of “occipito-linear and triangular fronto-temporo-parietal alopecia” was made. We also discuss whether the two different lesionscan be found in one patient as a combined form of neonatal occipital alopecia or not.
