Scalp Hair

Scalp Hair

Note what signs you see.

I (N. Zymak-Zakutnia, M.D.) see:

  • Scalp hair, coarse.
  • Scalp hair, double whorl, right clockwise and left anti-clockwise.
  • Premature canocity.

PERSPECTIVE: Dramatic example of disrupted hair patterning likely to be related to concurrent microcephaly. Also an illustration of deformation of a “comb-like” hair standing on ends mostly seen in non-human mammals – dermatoglyphic patterns provide equally dramatic illustrations in particular on fingertip with whirls patterns.
