“…A total of seven diagnoses of tinea barbae (Figure 1) monly observed when single-use razors were not yet available. 3,4 Albeit geographic differences have to be considered, and a 46.1% reduction in the number of diagnosed cases was observed in this study compared with a similar review realised in the past decade at another tertiary Portuguese hospital. 5 It is clear that facial overuse of high-strength topical steroids is a major issue perpetuating this disorder, which stands demonstrated both in our study and in others.…”

“…If not timely treated, the alopecia can evolve to cicatricial alopecia. Kerion may be seen also in the beard area [68].

“…The differential diagnosis includes psoriasis (Figs. 20.51 and 20.52), bacterial infection, folliculitis decalvans, and dissecting cellulitis, all presenting with neutrophilic folliculitis, but with absence of fungal elements on histologic sections and culture [68,71]. Differential diagnosis also includes seborrheic dermatitis, alopecia areata, and trichotillomania.…”
