(b) Dermatoscopy shows normal follicular openings with predominantly vellus hair in center and terminal hair at the periphery. (c) Histopathological examination of scalp biopsy shows normal number of hair follicles, all of which are vellus or indeterminate. Inflammation and scarring was not observed (H and E, ×100)
