Congenital triangular alopecia (CTA), a relatively less recognized condition of the scalp, presents as a localized nonscarring patch of alopecia. The condition is likely to be confused with more common diseases for example alopecia areata. Recently, a case of occipital CTA presented to us, whose parents had applied indigenous topical medicine to cure the lesion with resultant irritant reaction. The aim of our case report is to increase awareness of the condition so that unnecessary treatments may be avoided.
