Abstract Peripilar keratin casts are characterized by asymptomatic, minute, semifirm, tannish, discrete, freely movable, cylindrical masses, distributed along the scalp hairs. M. J. Brunner and J. M.

None of the authors could locate an identical case description. Report of Cases In June, 1958, I examined three Caucasian sisters, aged 4, 6, and 7 years. All had numerous, barely visible, tannish nodules on their hair shafts. These lesions were asymptomatic and had been noticed simultaneously in all three children approximately three months previously.
