A 26-year-old male physician had congenital temporal alopecia. The histological findings of this type of alopecia are reported for the first time, to our knowledge, and they are compared with those found in alopecia areata. The clinical and microscopic findings of this rare form of alopecia are distinct and allow easy separation from other forms of alopecia.
