Scarring alopecia: a classification based on microscopic criteria. J Cutan Pathol 1994; 21: 97–109 CHAPTER 5 Distinctive or critical histological features and associated diseases Classification schemes are of little value to pathologists trying to extract the diagnosis from a glass slide. The histological features, in conjunction with a brief clinical description, must somehow guide the pathologist to the correct diagnosis.

A generous amount of anesthetic (1–3 ml) should be injected into the deep dermis and superficial fat, and allowed to act for 15–30 minutes before the biopsy is performed. This will minimize bleeding. The blade of the punch biopsy tool should extend through the dermis down into the fat, so that intact bulbs of deeply rooted terminal hairs can be removed. A 4-mm biopsy wound can be easily closed with 3–0 suture because the needle can traverse the wound in a single pass. A suture color that contrasts with the patient’s hair will assist in suture removal 1 week after the biopsy is performed.

The starting point for arriving at a histological diagnosis is recognition of an obvious or dominant histological finding, such as miniaturization of hairs, ‘missing’ hairs, or perifollicular inflammation. Unfortunately, no single histological feature is sufficient to establish a definitive diagnosis in any form of hair loss. However, a differential diagnosis based on one or two histological features will help to create a ‘short list’ of possible diagnoses. Additional histological features characteristic of the entities on the ‘short’ list can then be used to narrow the field of possibilities.
