Although hair loss affects millions, the medical literature is relatively scant on the causes and treatment of this condition. This volume is the first in-depth look at the practical management (both medical and surgical) of all forms of hair loss. Hair loss is a very common problem and often a significant source of patient distress. The authors here examine the different reasons for hair loss, from nutrition to genetics to drug reactions. A rational, organized approach to management is crucial as therapy can vary widely among the different kinds of alopecia. The text addresses all aspects of the condition and is ideal for any professional who attends to such patients.
