Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans

Keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans is a rare X-linked disorder described by Siemens in 1926, a disease that begins in infancy with keratosis pilaris localized on the face, then evolves to more diffuse involvement.[1]: 580, 762 [2]: 649, 714 [3]

An association with SAT1 has been suggested.[4]
