This review covers congenital hair shaft anomalies, which are conditions affecting hair shaft morphology. Sometimes suspected with the naked eye, often in need of microscopic examination to properly diagnose, these conditions could lead to the discovery of a complex genetic syndrome. Further knowledge is needed in order to establish a diagnosis, approach treatment alternatives and shed light on prognoses, which benefits patients. Our aim is to provide an updated summary of pathogenesis, clinical findings, treatment options and prognosis as well as psychosocial impact.
