  To the Editor, Top


A 4 years 9 months old girl reported with the history of repeated respiratory tract infection. On examination she had typical Mongol face and congenital heart disease (VSD) with left to right shunt. Skin examination showed dry skin all over the body with loss of hair on four places of scalp. Diagnosis of Down's syndrome was established by clinical finding and karyotyping chromosomal analysis. Alopecia areata occurs in Down's syndrome in older children.[1] In our patient alopecia areata started when child was 11 months old.
