Les alopécies cicatricielles secondaires aux brûlures sont parfois difficiles à traiter et font appel à différentes techniques de chirurgie plastique, dont l’expansion du cuir chevelu.


Nous rapportons le cas d’un patient de 19ans victime d’une agression au pistolet à impulsion électrique ou Taser®, responsable d’une brûlure du cuir chevelu avec alopécie cicatricielle. Devant l’étendue de l’alopécie et sa localisation, nous avons choisi la technique d’expansion du cuir chevelu par prothèse. Le résultat cosmétique était satisfaisant.


Plusieurs techniques de reconstruction du cuir chevelu pour alopécie cicatricielle sont décrites. Les plus utilisées sont l’expansion, les lambeaux de cuir chevelu, les exérèses itératives et les implants folliculaires.


Cette observation suggère que l’expansion du cuir chevelu est une technique efficace dans la reconstruction des alopécies cicatricielles faisant suite à une brûlure par Taser®.

Scarring alopecia resulting from burns may be difficult to treat and involves various plastic surgery techniques such as expanded scalp flaps.


Herein, we report the case of a 19-year-old male patient who suffered burning of the scalp with scarring alopecia following an attack with a Taser® electrical gun. Given the extent and site of alopecia, we decided to create a prosthesis by means of scalp expansion. The cosmetic result was satisfactory.


Several scalp reconstruction techniques have been described for scarring alopecia, with the most widely used being expansion, scalp flaps, repeated excision and hair implants.


The present case suggests that scalp expansion offers an effective method for the reconstruction of scarring alopecia following burns with a Taser® device.
