Eyebrow reconstruction in dormant keratosis pilaris atrophicans.
J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg. 2011 Dec; 64(12):e303-5.JP

Abstract

A novel and successful case of eyebrow reconstruction, in dormant keratosis pilaris atrophicans, is presented. Keratosis pilaris atrophicans is a benign hereditary disorder of unknown aetiology. Grouped keratotic follicular papules and perifollicular erythema affect the cheeks and eyebrows, with a subsequent atrophic stage that results in scarring and alopecia. It often presents during early infancy with remission during adulthood. A 33 year old man presented with scarring and alopecia of the eyebrows and was followed over a total 4 year period during which reconstruction was achieved using individual hair follicle micrografts. Composite scalp grafts and flaps, more often than hair follicle micrografting techniques, are described in the literature for reconstruction of the eyebrows in a range of conditions. This case provides an encouraging example of successful micrografting in dormant inflammatory cutaneous disease.
