Hypertrichosis Lanuginosa Acquisita

definition

Rare syndrome usually accompanying an internal malignancy. The previously normal follicles of all types revert to the production of hair with lanugo characteristics. Fine, downy hair grows over a large area of the body, replacing normal hair and primary and secondary vellus. The hypertrichosis may precede the diagnosis of a neoplasm by several years.
