Figure 1: (a) A patch of localized alopecia at vertex area of scalp showing multiple small broken hairs of 1-2 mm in length with a grey tip resembling burning joss stick. (b) Hair shafts with a distal split of the hair tips into two-three tiny hair endings. This hair shaft abnormality has been described as broom hair fibers. (50 × Dino-Lite AM4113T™). (c) Broom fibers at higher magnification (200×, Dino-Lite AM4113T™). (d) Histopathological examination of skin biopsy in the horizontal section at the level of infundibulum showed the splitting of hair shaft into two parts, known as hamburger sign (40×). (e) Histopathological examination of skin biopsy in vertical section shows hyperkeratosis, hyperplasia, and scanty lymphocytic infiltrate in inter follicular area. (10×)
