Pseudopelade Vs Alopecia Areata
One of the main features of a scarring alopecia is the disappearance of the follicular openings or "pores." Pseudopelade is a scarring alopecia and can look very similar to alopecia areata. But, when viewed up close using a dermatoscope one can clearly see that the follicular openings start scarring over and disappearing in a scarring alopecia.
The clinical hallmark of a scarring alopecia is the loss of the follicular openings or pore markings.
