    TLDR Alopecia areata can sometimes appear as a straight line of hair loss instead of round patches.
    The document reported a case of alopecia areata (AA) presenting in a linear form, which is a deviation from the typical presentation of sharply demarcated round patches of hair loss. AA is a common, immune-mediated, nonscarring hair loss disorder that can affect individuals of any age and can lead to severe forms such as alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis, significantly impacting the patient's quality of life.
