Chapter 5. Alopecias

Definition

Loss of hair attributable either to the effects of inflammatory cells on follicles or to physiological or mechanical factors in which inflammatory cells play no role. Although the scalp is the site most often affected, any region of the skin that bears hair follicles may be involved by certain types of alopecia.
