General Conversation
Bj rnstad disorder is an extremely uncommon acquired disorder characterized by the presence of uncommonly squashed, turned hair shafts (pili torti) and, in most cases, hearing problems (sensorineural hearing loss). Hearing loss commonly affects both ears (reciprocal). People with this disorder usually have completely dry, fragile, lusterless, and/or coarse scalp hair as well as areas of patchy loss of hair (alopecia). Both autosomal leading as well as recessive inheritance have been reported in the medical literature.
