Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata

This refers to patchy (“areata”) loss of hair (“alopecia”,) most commonly on the scalp. Middle-aged males and elderly females are the most affected populace along with people on some cancer treatments. The exact cause is unknown but inheritance is usually present. If all scalp hair is lost, it is called Alopecia totalis and if all body hair is lost it is known as Alopecia universalis. In minor forms, hair may regrow within a year.
