Alopecia (Balding & Hair Loss)
Alopecia is the medical term for partial or complete loss of hair. Alopecia affects both men and women and is very common. There are many potential causes of alopecia, including genetic factors, aging, disease, radiation, stress, and poor nutrition. It includes both scarring (hair follicles are destroyed) and non-scarring (potentially reversible) types. Male-pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is the most prominent type of hair disorder and affects, to varying degrees, 50% of males over 50 years of age. Hair shaft disorders are usually hereditary hair shaft abnormalities. Systemic disease and poor prognosis often accompany these latter disorders.

Risk Factors for Alopecia:
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Poor diet
  • Damaging grooming practices
Signs & Symptoms of Alopecia:
    Alopecia—non-scarring:

  • Diffuse shedding of normal hair—typically in male-pattern baldness
  • Triangular recession of scalp line
  • Broken hairs
  • Smooth scalp
  • Inflammation
  • Fibrosis
  • Circular areas of hair loss
  • Possible loss of lashes, eyebrows, pubic hair


  • Alopecia—scarring:

  • Circumscribed areas
  • Inflammation at periphery, follicle loss toward center of lesions
  • Violet-colored macules
  • Scaling
