What is Lichen Planopilaris?

Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is a form of hair loss which can be permanent or scarring in nature.  The cause is unknown but is probably an inflammatory process induced by genetic or environmental factors.  It is classified as a primary inflammatory scarring type of hair loss. That is, it is not from infections, burns, surgical scars, caustic hair products, etc., but is a disease centered around the follicular unit itself.
