Ulerythema Ophryogenes

definition

Syndrome characterized by keratosis pilaris succeeded by atrophy. From birth or infancy reticular erythema and small horny papules are present in the outer halves of the eyebrows resulting in atrophy and permanent loss of the involved hairs. Occasionally the disorder extends to the adjacent skin, adjacent scalp, and cheeks. Males are predominantly involved. Many cases occur sporadically and are presumed to be the result of an inborn defect. Autosomal dominant inheritance has also been reported.
