Woolly hair, autosomal dominant

Common Name(s)

Woolly hair, autosomal dominant

Woolly hair (WH) refers to a group of hair shaft disorders that are characterized by fine and tightly curled hair. Compared to normal curly hair that is observed in some populations, WH grows slowly and stops growing after a few inches. Under light microscopy, WH shows some structural anomalies, including trichorrhexis nodosa and tapered ends. WH can appear as part of several syndromes, such as Naxos disease ({601214}) and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome ({115150}) (summary by {7:Petukhova et al., 2009}). See {278150} for a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of autosomal recessive woolly hair.
