Is there a causal relationship between CLL and Scarring Alopecia/ Lichen Planopilaris?

Ask the Doctor Question:

Is there a causal relationship between CLL and Scarring Alopecia/ Lichen Planopilaris? Scarring Alopecia is categorized by the types of cells that attack the hair follicles: lymphocytes, neutrophils or mixed cells. (I was diagnosed with Stage 0 CLL in 1/2018 and Scarring Alopecia in 5/2021.)

Answer: There are no data to support a causal relationship.
