Short anagen syndrome is an uncommon condition characterized by the inability to grow long hair and an increase in the number of hairs in telogen. The incidence of short anagen syndrome is poorly documented in the medical literature. In all reports, patients are Caucasian and usually have fine blond hair. We report a case of a 38-year-old African American woman with short anagen syndrome.
