We report two cases of keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans in a Caucasian family involving a 28-year-old woman and her mother. This is an unusual family in that no male relatives are similarly affected. Secondly, both patients have no significant eye changes but quite extensive scarring alopecia. To the best of our knowledge this is the second reported family in the UK.
