ABSTRACT
Alopecic and Aseptic Nodules of the Scalp, first described as pseudo cyst of the scalp, represent a new clinical entity. The nodules are glistening and non fluctuating and the rest of the scalp remains normal. Their surface is rounded and domed and is the seat of an inflammatory cicatricial alopecia. We report one case of AANS and discuss about clinical features, histology, aetiology and treatment.
