Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a subtype of lichen planopilaris, a form of scarring alopecia that typically affects the frontal hairline. It is histologically similar to other scarring alopecias and thus can represent a diagnostic challenge to the pathologist. Both clinical and histological evaluations are required for an accurate diagnosis and management.
