Short anagen syndrome.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Short anagen syndrome is an uncommon, probably underreported, condition whose clinical characteristics are poorly recognized and whose incidence is poorly documented in the medical literature. We describe the clinicopathologic features of a child with short anagen syndrome and propose methods for diagnosing this entity by clinical examination, trichogram, light microscopic examination of the hair shaft, scalp biopsy, and measurement of scalp hair growth rate.
