Elise A. Olsen, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- 1. Discuss the most recent information on the etiology of alopecia areata.
- 2. Use microscopic evaluation of hair bulbs obtained by hair pull, dermoscopic evaluation of the scalp and scalp biopsy to help make the diagnosis.
- 3. Summarize the many effective treatments available for the various subtypes of alopecia areata.
This forum is one of an annual series covering an update on various hair loss conditions. This year we will once again focus on alopecia areata. We will cover new information on the etiology as well as educate the attendee on how to use clinical findings, the microscopic hair examination, dermoscopic examination of the scalp, and scalp biopsy to help make the diagnosis of alopecia areata. We will also present a practical and thorough review of therapeutic options and camouflage techniques for alopecia areata.
