Graham Little Piccardi Lassueur syndrome (GLPLS) is a rare dermatosis characterized by patchy cicatricial alopecia of scalp, rapidly developing keratosis pilaris like follicular papules over trunk and extremities, and noncicatricial loss of axillary and pubic hair. This syndrome which is mostly seen in middle aged post-menopausal females (between ages 30-70) has rarely ever been described in the pediatric age group. We report a case of a 15 year old girl presenting to us with this rare syndrome.
