Aseptic and alopecic nodules of the scalp (AANS) are a rare and emerging entity in literature, etiology of which is presently unknown. It is characterized by multiple skin-colored dome-shaped nodules associated with nonscarring alopecia. It is usually located in the upper part of occiput and is surrounded by normal scalp. AANS have a good prognosis and can even resolve spontaneously. Only few cases have been reported in the literature so far. We are reporting a rare case of AANS in a 26-year-old female.
