We present a 5-year-old girl with Type A woolly hair nevus. This is a rare non-hereditary focal condition characterized by unruly and tightly coiled hair. It may be associated with epidermal or melanocytic nevus. Children with woolly hair must be examined completely and monitored regularly to rule out cardiofaciocutaneous and Noonan syndrome.
