Sample text

In the knockout mice, hair loss occurred in patchy areas and the mice exhibited severe scratching behavior Based on this work, a new model of the pathogenesis of cicatricial alopecia has been developed (Fig. 2). External, environmental, and/or genetic triggers may lead to localized peroxisomal dysfunction, and result in abnormal lipid homeostasis and lipid accumulation, causing tissue damage (lipotoxicity) of the pilosebaceous unit. This tissue damage then triggers chemokine/cytokine expression, recruits lymphocytes, and macrophages, and activates a lipid-mediated programmed cell death (lipoapoptosis) and results in permanent hair loss in LPP.

Other studies have also pointed to the importance of the sebaceous gland and normal lipid pathways in maintaining a healthy hair follicle. In 2007, a serendipitous observation was noted in a mammary gland-specific knockout mouse. The mice themselves had no visible changes or specific phenotype, but nursing pups of the mutant mice developed alopecia induced by toxic oxidized lipids carried in the mothers’ milk. Once the pups were weaned, their hair loss was reversed. This striking observation suggests the vital role of lipid homeostasis in normal hair follicles.

Although the infiltrate consists largely of lymphocytes, the designation LMPCA is not a connotation intended to convey that the process is strictly lymphocytic in nature. Admixed histocytes and eosinophils 17 can be found in modest numbers, and occasionally small numbers of neutrophils are also included in the infiltrate. The infiltrate tends to be exclusively perifollicular in distribution and band-like in configuration, although the character of the infiltrate is commonly disappointingly less lichenoid than conventional lichen planus (LP) (Fig.
