The three clinical variants of the disease consist of a primary acute disorder of young persons, a primary chronic disorder of older persons and a secondary disorder associated with benign or malignant disease. The primary disorder of young person consists of focal skin lesion with slight progression and spontaneously resolves between 2 months and 2 years. Primary chronic alopecia mucinosa of older persons affects people older than 40 years. Lesions have a widespread distribution and they may persist or recur indefinitely. The secondary alopecia mucinosa may be associated with either benign disease or malignant disease.
