Title: Non-viable shrink embryo in nit. Nit on paper.             Author: GAETANO SCANNI




-Clinical description:                              hair taken from a subject during therapy (data not available).


-Dermoscopic description:                      the embryo occupies only a part of the shell, showing a retraction that

                                                                leaves a empty space in the dorsal part of the egg.

-Comment:                                              the treatment but potentially also other non-pharmacological factors can cause harm to the embryo or the shell.

                                                                In this case, embryo suffering is due to a phenomenon of contraction impossible in natural conditions.
