Brauer nevus presents as a local circumscribed area of noncicatricial alopecia. It usually involves the frontotemporal scalp. We report an unusual case of Brauer nevus involving the right eyebrow. Trichoscopy helps to confirm the diagnosis and differentiate this condition from other types of nonscarring alopecias. It also helps to avoid unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
