Pseudopelade of Brocq is an asymptomatic, beginning insidiously with small, white, depressed, bald spots, devoid of normal hair that mark the borders of some of the earlier lesions with atrophy and minimal perifollicular erythema, if at all. We report here a family of 3 members (2 brothers and 1 sister) with similar findings of cicatricial alopecia for more than 10 years duration but without any cause which may lead to scarring and loss of hair of primary type of pseudopelade. To the best of our knowledge no familial incidence of pseudopelade has been reported any where in the literature so far.
