Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia: A Brief Review

Larissa Oliveira Batista and Thuany Silva Santos*

Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia (CIA) occurs in a large proportion of patients undergoing chemotherapy. This happens because hair bulb cells have a high proliferation, being very susceptible to the drugs used to fight cancer. It is important to carefully evaluate the treatment employed to anticipate persistent Chemotherapy-Induced Alopecia (pCIA). Trichoscopy has also been shown to be useful due to its practicality in monitoring the evolution of CIA.
