Mentions: On trichoscopy, the hair present on the scalp was terminal with moderate thickness and no perifollicular pigmentation, inflammation, or occlusion [Figure 5]. On microscopic examination, the hair shaft and hair bulb were normal. Vitamin D3, serum calcium, and immunoglobulin E levels were normal. Biopsy was not done as the parents did not consent to it.
