Woolly hair generalizado: caso clínico e revisão da literatura Generalized woolly hair: case report and literature review

By Tiago Torres, Susana Machado and Manuela Selores

Abstract

O termo woolly hair, ou cabelo lanoso, refere-se a uma variante anormal de cabelo, que pode ser parcial ou generalizado. As variantes de woolly hair generalizado são raras e podem ocorrer isoladamente ou associadas a outras alterações cutâneas e extracutâneas. Desta forma, nestes doentes, é necessário a exclusão de certos síndromes, como o de Noonan e cardiofaciocutâneo (CFC), que cursam com importante morbilidade e mortalidade. É descrito o caso clínico de uma criança com woolly hair generalizado e queratose pilar, mas que, após avaliação dos vários órgãos e sistemas, não foi encontrada qualquer alteração ou característica associada a esses síndromes.<br>The term woolly hair, or tightly curled hair, refers to a structural anomaly of scalp hair, which can be partial or generalized. Generalized woolly hair variants are rare and can occur in isolation or in association with other cutaneous and extra-cutaneous abnormalities. Thus, it is important to dismiss in these patients the diagnosis of syndromes such as the Noonan syndrome and Cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome, which have high morbidity and mortality rates. We report the clinical case of a 7 year-old boy with generalized woolly hair and keratosis pilaris. After an evaluation of organs and systems, no alteration or characteristics associated with these syndromes were found
