Even though we don’t fully understand the pathophysiology of many hair diseases, there are always treatment options available. In this book, Jerry Shapiro shares his many years of experience in all aspects of this field. He discusses the most common cause of hair loss, androgenic alopecia with reference to major advances in medical therapy for male and female patients. He also examines alopecia areata, including pathogenesis, clinical features, differential diagnosis, and clinical pearls for drug treatment. The issue of drug induces alopecia is reviewed along with other topic such as telogen effluvium, inflammatory and non-inflammatory cicatricial alopecia.
