Predominantly Lymphocytic Group



In this chapter, lichen planopilaris, Graham Little syndrome, frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), pseudopelade (Brocq), and central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia are described. Two additional entities that are not primary cicatricial alopecias are included, namely chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CCLE) and keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans (KFSD) because they are important to recognize and differentiate.
