Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans (KFSD) is a rare follicular disorder characterized by widespread keratosis pilaris and progressive scarring alopecia of the scalp, eyebrows, and axillae. This condition is sometimes associated with photophobia and keratoderma. This is X-linked genodermatoses predominantly seen in males.
