Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia

CCCA is a clinical description that encompasses several types of scarring alopecia. Patients with CCCA have an area of scarring on the crown that enlarges with time. The active disease occurs symmetrically at the periphery of the area of scarring, this leads to centrifugal expansion of the lesion. Eventually the disease burns out. The so-called follicular degeneration syndrome and folliculitis decalvans are both conditions that result in CCCA. As mentioned earlier, some patients with LPP can also present with CCCA.
