Lassueur-Graham-Little-Piccardi syndrome.

A 52-year-old man presented for evaluation of patchy alopecia of the scalp, axilla, and groin and of follicular spiny papules. Histopathologic examination showed a dense, follicular, lymphocytic infiltrate and interfollicular interface changes. Lassueur-Graham-Little-Piccardi syndrome is characterized by the triad of scarring, patchy alopecia of the scalp, non-cicatricial alopecia of the axillae and pubis, and a keratotic, follicular eruption. There may be an etiologic relationship with lichen planus. Treatment is difficult, although isolated reports have demonstrated success with cyclosporin and thalidomide.
