I sometimes come across patients suffering from hair loss due to causes not as common as androgenic alopecia. Recently I came across another example of hair loss - this one due to Lichen planopilaris.
In most of the instances, I have found that the majority of the medical community is as clueless about the causes and treatments of the less common forms of hair loss as the general population. It is vital that these forms of hair loss be discussed too. It’s also important to know when (and if ever) hair transplant can be an option for them.
I shall devote the next few posts to these topics. Please feel free to join in the discussion with questions, comments, experiences and suggestions.
