Alopecia has been described as associated with diseases of the endorine glands, various tension state and emotional shock, and as a result of reflex irritation from traumatic injuries. Recently we have observed 3 cases of distinctive type of alopecia after long timed microvascular surgery in which a long-standing pressure to the occiput, seemed to be responsible. All patients noted swelling, exudation and crust formation over the occiput shortly after the operation and usually within the 2 days. Some times there was tenderness. Hair loss occurred from 7 days and regrowth of hair appeared from 30 days with non-specific therapy to hair loss. Histopathologic microscopic findings showed that there were mild chronic perivascular inflammatory reactions.
