Differential Diagnosis

History: A young adult complained localized hair loss in his beard of two months duration. On examination, a circumscribed rounded to oval area of non cicatricial hair loss was seen with many inflammatory papules and pustules studded the involved area. The hairs were easily and painlessly pulled out of their hair follicles. Griseofulvin in a dose of 20 mg/kg/day for one month gave excellent result.
