Abstract :

Androgenic alopecia is the most common cause of hair loss in men and women and the most common hair condition seen at the dermatology clinics. Most dermatologists are comfortable with diagnosing androgenic alopecia which at advanced stages is amenable for transplantation. However, other scarring and non-scarring hair loss conditions may mimic androgenic alopecia and be misdiagnosed and managed as androgenic alopecia. These cases may not be good transplant candidate and the underlying condition may worsen. It is very important for dermatologists and hair transplant surgeons to recognize these conditions and treat them to suppress their activity prior to transplanting them. In this presentation, we will discuss some of these conditions including but not limited to scarring alopecia in pattern distribution, Central Centrifugal Scarring Alopecia (CCCA), frontal fibrosing alopecia, diffuse alopecia areata, traction alopecia and senescent alopecia. We will highlight the differences between these conditions, provide clinical and trichoscopic clues to identify these androgenic mimickers and outline the main treatment options. At the end of this session, dermatologists and hair transplant surgeons will be able to identify the basic clinical diagnosis and underlying pathological condition of hair loss that are not always amenable for transplantation.
