Psoriatic alopecia: acute and chronic hair loss in 47 patients with scalp psoriasis.
Runne U, Kroneisen-Wiersma P.
Symptomatic hair loss and alopecia were seen in psoriatic lesions of the scalp in 47 patients. snip... Hair loss varied in intensity from protracted to moderate and massive (36% in tufts). It presented as acute (51%), chronic (36%) or chronic recurrent (13%). Thirteen patients (28%) became aware of the hair loss with the beginning of therapy. snip... This infiltrate can alter the follicle epithelium and may lead to a granulomatous foreign-body reaction with destruction of the hair follicle. After topical antipsoriatic treatment, most of the reexamined patients showed complete hair regrowth, while 5 developed a residual scarring. Therefore, in the patient with circumscribed or diffuse symptomatic alopecia, with or without scarring, psoriatic alopecia should be considered.
