Eyelash Trichomegaly: A Rare Presenting Feature of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.


ABSTRACT: An increase in length, curling, pigmentation, or thickness of eyelashes is termed eyelash trichomegaly. It may be inherited as an isolated trait or as a feature of a congenital syndrome such as Oliver-McFarlane syndrome or oculocutaneous albinism. Acquired conditions associated with eyelash trichomegaly include HIV infection, connective tissue disorders, and the administration of drugs such as cyclosporine and topical latanoprost. We hereby report a rare case of acquired eyelash trichomegaly with diffuse hair loss and "lupus hairs" on the scalp in a 16-year-old female diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus.
