Synchronous pancreas and gallbladder cancer with concomitant alopecia totalis.

A 55-year-old female presented with history of pain in the right hypochondrium along with complete loss of facial and scalp hair over last two months. On evaluation, she was found to have locally advanced, synchronous malignancies of the gallbladder and head of the pancreas. Synchronous malignancy of gallbladder and pancreas is in itself very rare and less than 10 such cases have been reported in the world literature.

However, alopecia totalis as a presenting feature of any abdominal malignancy has never been reported in the medical literature. The present report describes a rare association of synchronous pancreatobiliary malignancies with strange clinical presentation.
