We report a case of alopecia mucinosa in a 9-year-old girl. She presented with several papules on an erythematous patch on the right side of the ala nasi, a hairless nodular lesion on the same side of the nasal canal. Histopathologic findings obtained from the nasal canal revealed typical features of alopecia mucinosa, such as reticular degeneration, cystic space formation and mucin deposition in the pilosebaceous follicle. The case displayed no evidence or clinical features of any malignant changes, and we suspect the case to be an acute form of alopecia mucinosa.
