A 34-year-old man suffering from alopecia universalis was burnt in an accident. The burns affected 16% of the man’s body, who was then treated with skin grafting. Six weeks after the procedure, a vellus hair appeared on the grafted areas, disappearing eight weeks later. The authors discuss this phenomenon in the light of data obtained from C3H/HeJ mice, an animal model of alopecia areata.
