Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans in Child
KFSD begins in early childhood with keratosis pilaris on the face, which progresses to the trunk and extremities. Limited or widespread cicatricial alopecia of the scalp, eyelashes, and eyebrows ensues. Boys may have corneal dystrophy with associated photophobia. A pustular variant with crusting and scaling on the scalp may occur around puberty. The overall presentation in girls in X-linked dominant cases may be milder than in boys.
