The principal differential diagnoses consist of impetigo and bacterial or sterile folliculitis or abscesses. KC is usually misdiagnosed as bacterial abscesses.
However, bacterial infections do not cause alopecia, and hairs plucked from a kerion are painless.
Diagnostic errors causes patients to undergo unnecessary surgery or antibiotic treatment.
However, there is little evidence to support the use of antibiotics for severe KC. Kerion celsi requires treatment with systemic antifungals to penetrate the affected hair shafts.
Oral steroid is tapered to withdraw in 10 days. Manual pressure to remove pus from sinuses was an adjuvant therapy to systemic oral antifungal agents for severe KC.
Protozoal infection of scalp 4. Syphilitic alopecia Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by Treponema pallidum. Syphilitic alopecia is an uncommon feature of secondary syphilis with an incidence of 2.
SA can be seen with other mucocutaneous symptoms of secondary syphilis. Hair loss usually occurs late in the secondary syphilis, about 8—12 weeks after the first signs of secondary syphilis.
The other cutaneous manifestations of syphilis is not seen in essential SA.
The histopathology findings of SA usually include a normal epidermis with areas of follicular hyperkeratosis.
While the number of anagen follicles are reduced markedly, the number of catagen and telogen follicles increase. A perivascular and perifollicular lymphocytic dermal infiltration with scattered plasma cells is observed in some cases.
Under trichoscopy black dots, focal atrichia, hypopigmentation of hair shaft and yellow dots are observed in the hair loss region.
Alopecia areata, tinea capitis and trichotillomania differ from SA with absence of exclamation hair, coma hair, flame hairs or v-sign, respectively.

The prevalence of PC is usually higher in girls and women and varies greatly from country to country. It is 0. There are estimates that 6—12 million children in the United States are infected with PC annually.
The prevalence in 5318 elementary school children, aged 8—16 years in Mersin, Turkey, was 6. In another study of 1569 school children, aged 7—14 years, the prevalence of head lice was 16.
It tends to be more prevalent in children because they have a high incidence of head-to-head contact with other children. Girls were at a greater risk for head lice because of their tendency to have longer hair than boys and social behaviour.
