BACKGROUND: Alopecia areata (AA) is a common, chronic inflammatory disease characterized by nonscarring hair loss on the scalp or any hair-bearing area of the body. Recently, dermoscopy, a noninvasive diagnostic procedure, has been employed for the diagnosis of AA. AIM: To evaluate various dermoscopic patterns in AA and correlate these patterns with the disease activity and severity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Dermoscopy was performed on AA patients using DL1 dermoscope (magnification ×10 was used)...

REVIEW
Ligia A Brzezińska-Wcisło, Dominika Wcisło-Dziadecka
Civilizational progress initially contributes to the problem of hair loss and then to alopecia as regards both frequency and therapeutic dilemmas. The work presents trichological problems which occur more rarely, i.e. drug-induced, anagen and telogen alopecia, congenital and acquired structural hair disorders, psychic disturbances concerning the hair as well as the hair during menopause. Then, the article briefly describes contagious (infectious) diseases as well as diseases with inflammatory etiology which are accompanied by exfoliation and (frequently) pruritus...

The prognosis of alopecia areata is better in cases with single and small lesions, and the variability of the extension of the disease is one of the criteria for the choice of treatment modality. Several medications have been described in the literature for the treatment of alopecia areata, including corticosteroids, minoxidil, and diphencyprone. The authors review treatments for alopecia areata.

Cutaneous discoloration secondary to dermal deposition of titanium dioxide (TiO2) particles is recognized but seldom reported in the literature. In this report, the authors describe the case of a 61-year-old gentleman, with a long history of alopecia areata, who presented with numerous, discrete dark blue macules on the scalp. Scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy analysis ultimately identified the macules as deposits of TiO2. The patient had a history of intralesional triamcinolone injections for management of alopecia areata...

Polyglandular autoimmune syndrome (PAS) is the name given to a group of autoimmune disorders of the endocrine glands. PAS type III (PAS III) comprises several autoimmune diseases (autoimmune thyroiditis, immune-mediated diabetes mellitus, pernicious anaemia, vitiligo, alopecia areata and many others) and is subdivided into four subcategories. We report the case of a 52-year-old woman with autoimmune thyroiditis, vitiligo, alopecia areata, psoriasis and lichen sclerosus, suggesting a clinical diagnosis of PAS IIIC with a singular prevalence of cutaneous features...

A 53-year-old man with autoimmune pancreatitis as IgG4-related disease presented alopecia. Immunostaining showed perifollicular infiltration of IgG4-positive cells and perifollicular/intrafollicular infiltration of predominantly CD4-positive cells especially in the upper and lower parts. Alopecia areata is characterized by perifollicular/intrafollicular lymphocyte infiltration of the lower bulb and inflammation in the upper dermis. We determined the patient had IgG4-related skin disease, rather than alopecia areata...

Alopecia areata is a common autoimmune disorder leading to hair loss. It usually affects individuals under the age of 40, and first appearance in older subjects is considered uncommon. Here, we report 2 cases of rapidly progressing alopecia areata, which appeared for the first time in adults. Patient 1 had alopecia universalis, which preceded the identification of hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma, a rare form of lymphoma. Patient 2 suffered from the ophiasis type of alopecia areata, presenting for the first time following chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphoma...

PURPOSE: To establish whether trichoscopy can be useful in the differential diagnosis of patchy alopecia in children. PROCEDURES: The study was a retrospective analysis (2012-2015) and included 68 patients under 6 years of age. The inclusion criteria were age and the presence of 1-3 alopecia patches. A total of 124 alopecia patches were examined with the use of a videodermoscope: 102 alopecia areata, 8 tinea capitis, 6 trichotillomania, 3 temporal triangular alopecia and 5 aplasia cutis congenita...

BACKGROUND: Alopecia areata (AA) is a noncicatricial (nonscarring) alopecia. The association between AA and celiac disease (CD) is debatable. Several studies declare the relationship between AA and CD as measurement of celiac autoantibodies (anti-gliadin IgA and anti-gliadin IgG), but a few studies consider anti-tissue transglutaminase IgA. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency distribution of celiac autoantibodies (all of them) in patients with AA compared with controls...

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has long been used for patients with psoriasis. This study aimed to investigate TCM usage in patients with psoriasis. We analyzed a cohort of one million individuals representing the 23 million enrollees randomly selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan. We identified 28,510 patients newly diagnosed with psoriasis between 2000 and 2010. Among them, 20,084 (70.4%) patients were TCM users. Patients who were female, younger, white-collar workers and lived in urbanized area tended to be TCM users...

BACKGROUND: Alopecia areata (AA) is a common autoimmune disorder. There are no reliably effective therapies for AA. OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Janus kinase 1/3 inhibitor, tofacitinib, in a series of patients over an extended period of time. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of patients age 18 years or older with AA with at least 40% scalp hair loss treated with tofacitinib. The primary end point was the percent change in Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT) score during treatment...

BACKGROUND: There are no reliably effective therapies for alopecia areata (AA). OBJECTIVE: We sought to evaluate the benefit and adverse effects of the Janus kinase 1/3 inhibitor, tofacitinib, in a series of adolescent patients with AA. METHODS: We reviewed the records of 13 adolescent patients with AA treated with tofacitinib. Severity of disease was assessed using the Severity of Alopecia Tool (SALT). Adverse events were evaluated by laboratory monitoring, physical examinations, and review of systems...

Our previous observations clarified that Graves' disease (GD) is the most frequent autoimmune disease in patients with alopecia areata (AA), and 42.7% of patients with AA were positive for thyrotropin receptor antibody (TRAb). A class II HLA haplotype DRB1∗15:01-DQB1∗06:02 was suggested to contribute to autoimmunity against the thyroid gland in AA. To further clarify the genetic factors contributing to organ specificity in autoimmune diseases, we studied the contribution of non-HLA genes to organ specificity in GD and AA...

Alopecia areata is a form of non-scarring alopecia that results from a hyperactive immune response of T cells against hair follicles. Many patients with visible hair loss experience psychological and emotional distress, as a result of their cosmetic disfigurement, and frequently seek treatment. However, existing treatment methods, such as corticosteroids, topical irritants, sensitizing agents, immunosuppressants, and psoralen plus ultraviolet light A may result in various adverse effects and often lack efficacy...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic disease of the gastrointestinal tract attributed to aberrant activity of the immune system. Increasing evidence suggests that patients with IBD are at an increased risk of inflammatory skin diseases (ISDs). OBJECTIVE: We sought to clarify the association between IBD and ISDs using a nationwide health claims database maintained in Korea. METHODS: We interrogated Korean health claim database data from 2009 to 2013...
