Scalp hair heterochromia involves the presence of two different colors of the scalp hair in the same individual. It may be of three types: patchy, diffuse, and segmental. Isolated patchy heterochromia of the scalp hair is a rare entity, and a very few cases have been described in the literature. Hereby, we report one such case of isolated patchy scalp hair heterochromia in a 2-year-old healthy male child with black hairs presenting with a bunch of blond hairs without any underlying abnormalities along with the literature review.
