Woolly hair autosomal recessive 1 with or without hypotrichosis (ARWH1) [MIM:278150]: A hair shaft disorder characterized by fine and tightly curled hair. Compared to normal curly hair that is observed in some populations, woolly hair grows slowly and stops growing after a few inches. Under light microscopy, woolly hair shows some structural anomalies, including trichorrhexis nodosa and tapered ends. Some individuals exhibit features of hypotrichosis. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

Hypotrichosis 8 (HYPT8) [MIM:278150]: A condition characterized by the presence of less than the normal amount of hair and abnormal hair follicles and shafts, which are thin and atrophic. The disorder affects the trunk and extremities as well as the scalp, and the eyebrows and eyelashes may also be involved, whereas beard, pubic, and axillary hairs are largely spared. In addition, patients can develop hyperkeratotic follicular papules, erythema, and pruritus in affected areas. In some patients with congenital hypotrichosis, monilethrix-like hairs showing elliptical nodes have been observed. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
