Pityriasis amiantacea is a scaly condition of the scalp. This is usually seen in women or children. It is associated with various underlying primary dermatoses, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, tinea capitis, pyoderma, pediculosis, alopecia areata, lichen simplex chronicus and lichen planus. To our knowledge, there have been no other reports of pityriasis amiantacea in Korea. With scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image of the disease, we report a typical case of pityriasis amiantacea.
