1-27). The follicular stile (follicular streamer, fibrous tract) is a linear neurofibrovascular structure that extends from the base of telogen hair follicles into the subjacent tissues (see Fig. 1-27). It represents the dermal pathway followed by the reactivated, enlarging anagen phase of the hair follicle. A hair that is plucked in anagen shows a large expanded root that is moist and glistening, often pigmented and square at the proximal end, and surrounded by a root sheath (see Figure 2-28).

The amino acid citrulline occurs in high concentrations in hair and trichohyalin granules; it has been used as a marker for hair follicle differentiation. The outer root sheath is thickest near the epidermis and gradually decreases in thickness toward the hair bulb. In the inferior segment of the hair follicle, the outer root sheath is covered by the inner root sheath. It does not undergo keratinization, and its cells have a clear, vacuolated (glycogen) cytoplasm. In the isthmus, the outer root sheath is no longer covered by the inner root sheath, and it does undergo trichilemmal keratinization (keratohyalin granules are not formed).
