Rio Branco, 39 A study conducted in Brazil inthe fear of losing all the hairs was as great as the fear of developing a myocardial infarction. A possible mechanism of follicle miniaturization is the decrease in the number of papilla cells due to apoptosis.

Family segregation is not yet fully understood, however, the high prevalence of FPHL and the fact that FPHL manifests with varying degrees of intensity and has its onset at different ages, suggest a polygenic pattern with incomplete penetrance. Gender-specific association of androgenetic alopecia with metabolic syndrome in a middle-aged Korean population. FPHL is the condition that most commonly leads to hair loss in adult females.

Lee’s aim was to develop a unified scale, which was easy to remember and apply and feminona be used in various types of baldness presentation in both men and women.

Adapted from Randall, A single nucleotide polymorphism in the first exon, known as STUL was associated with baldness. Thus, it is understood that miniaturization occurs sometime between the catagen phase and the formation of the new hair.

Diagnostic and predictive value of horizontal sections of scalp biopsy specimens in male pattern androgenetic alopecia.

Although treatment is not considered part of the scope of this text, it should be noted that the therapeutic response of FPHL is variable androhenetica less expressive than that of MPA. Gupta AK, Charrette A. The identification of vulnerable patients associated with the diagnosis of early forms of FPHL, as well as the early introduction of therapy may promote better clinical results than those achieved in more advanced cases or even stop the progression of the disease.


Current and novel methods for assessing efficacy of hair growth promoters in pattern hair loss. The diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency and its potential relationship to hair loss.

The efficacy and safety of 5alpha-reductase inhibitors in androgenetic alopecia: The frequency of this process is variable. Although the hairs do not exhibit a vital biological function, they are of marked importance for appearance, self-esteem and social identity function.

Female Pattern Hair Loss: a clinical and pathophysiological review

In this pattern which was described by Olsen in9293 in addition to the diffuse thinning process, there androgejetica an accentuation in the central line, opening up into a triangle with its base at the anterior hair implantation line Figure 6. Dermoscopy in female androgenic alopecia: Classification of the types of androgenetic alopecia common baldness occurring in the female sex. Towards a molecular understanding of hair loss and its treatment. In addition, DHT may interfere with the follicular cycle by interacting with the Wnt signaling pathway.

It allows the estimation of the number and density of hairs, of the percentage of terminal and vellus hairs, and by mathematical approximation, of the percentage of hairs in the anagen and telogen phases.

Received Jan 13; Accepted May The causal model for this finding has not yet been established, but it fsminina be related to a hyperandrogenic state induced by insulin resistance, which also favors atherosclerosis. Depending on the results and on the clinical context, a complementary endocrinologic evaluation can be performed.

The dependence on androgens alopcia the development of baldness in men was observed by Hippocrates BC and established by Hamilton in Controls of hair follicle cycling. The investigation of the causes of telogen effluvium can benefit the therapeutic response in patients with concomitant conditions. Main factors associated with the transition from the anagen hair phase to the catagen hair phase.


In order to investigate the relationship between baldness and metabolic syndrome, an epidemiological study was conducted in Korea in J Cutan Med Surg. These elements suggest that other changes are necessary for development of MPA, which supports the hypothesis of a polygenic origin and epigenetic control of this entity, such as hormonal changes, medications, and environmental stimuli.

As the images are analyzed 72 hours after shaving, the length of the hair allows to differentiate between those hairs that grew and those that did not. The dermoscope, which is used by dermatologists on a daily basis, is an excellent tool to assist in early diagnosis and assessment of therapeutic response in androgenetic alopecia. The term is also registered this way among the health science descriptors DECS for scientific indexing in Brazil. J Am Acad Dermatol.

Dermoscopic findings in female androgenetic alopecia

Malloy PJ, Feldman D. The honeycomb pigment was found in 14 patients and the peripilar brown halo in 22 Figures 1B and 1C. In general, FPHL has its onset during the feminkna years. The miniaturization of the hair follicle caused by androgens occurs primarily due to the action of DHT, which has five times greater affinity for the androgen receptor AR than testosterone.
