Abstract
A 77-year-old woman born in the Dominican Republic presented with fullness of the glabella and medial eyebrows for 1 year followed by alopecia of the lateral eyebrows and frontal hairline. She stated that although she had a high hairline at baseline, it had receded in the past year. She had also noted central scalp hair thinning that started 6 years earlier. She denied all styling practices that used traction or chemical processes, although she admitted to hair dye and blow dryer use. She reported "acne" in the central face for decades and darkening of the skin on the lateral face for several years. Her medical history included hypertension, hyperlipidemia, hypothyroidism, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and treated breast ductal hyperplasia. Her medications were metoprolol, amlodipine, aspirin, levothyroxine, omeprazole, pravastatin, and meclizine; she denied starting any new medications within the past 2 years. Her family history was notable for androgenic pattern alopecia in a brother and a high hairline in her father. Review of systems was negative except for knee arthralgias and seasonal allergic rhinitis.
