Background and Design: Alopecia areata (AA) is characterized by non-scatricial hair loss with exacerbations and remissions. He had reticular alopecia areata with poor prognosis among alopecia areata. PDF | Background and Design: Alopecia areata (AA) is characterized by non-scatricial hair loss with exacerbations and remissions. The extent of hair loss and patient age when first diagnosed appears to be a prognostic factor, being a less favorable prognosis with childhood-onset alopecia areata and ophiasis, and a later stage of onset correlates with less extensive alopecia. The patient visited once a week and was treated with triamcinolone injection, steroid liquid application, and Minoxidil liquid application. Lancet. 3. 4. In addition, a long duration and early onset of disease are indicators of poor prognosis. The presence of alopecia totalis/universalis for >2 years, severe nail abnormalities, atopy, and onset in childhood (<5 years) are factors thought to be associated with a poor response to treatment. Early age of onset and prolonged disease duration indicate poor prognosis. In a study of 18 of other autoimmune diseases and a young age of onset. The prevalence of Alopecia areata in the UK population is around 0.15%. Introduction. Alopecia areata (AA), the most common form of acquired alopecia, shows variable hair loss 1 and affects infants and elderly patients alike. Alopecia areata is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the hair follicle causing patchy non-scarring hair loss on the scalp. 1996;347:1700-1701. In 80% of patients with a single bald patch, spontaneous regrowth occurs within a year. In alopecia areata, black dots signify residues of pigmented hair destroyed at the level of the scalp. Uthman A, Brna C, WeningerW, Tschachler E. No HHV8 in non-Kaposi's sarcoma mucocutaneous lesions from immunodeficient HIV-positive pa- tients. Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune hair loss condition that affects people of all ages. Other poor prognostic factors include: In alopecia areata, the inflammatory infiltrate around the lower portion of the anagen hair follicle causes anagen arrest and subsequent destruction of hair follicle. What is the outcome for paediatric alopecia areata? [Medline] . Alopecia areata is a relatively common condition which may occur at any age in either sex. 2. Alopecia universalis is an autoimmune disease that causes complete hair loss on the scalp and the body. N EnglJMed. Mostly reversible, sudden onset, symptomless, circular hair loss of varying severity and unknown cause (autoimmunological factors are discussed), histomorphologically based … 1999 Dec. 4(3):216-9. Although its etiopathogenesis is not known, autoimmune factors have been suggested. Early onset and lengthy duration are poor prognostic factors. Celsus, 30-60 AD; Sauvages, 1706 . The following three factors were found to be of prognostic significance: type of alopecia areata as documented before treatment, duration of the disease before therapy, and presence of nail changes. The side effect profile and high rate of recurrence render the drug a poor choice for the use in alopecia areata. So the drug is to be attempted only in severe forms of alopecia areata not responding to treatment 71. Severity of AA at onset is perhaps the most important negative prognostic factor (2). Alopecia areata occurs in both men and women, but the loss of hair is likely to be more significant in men. 19-22 Stress may itself trigger an immune reaction. Poor prognostic factors include bald patches persisting for more than one year, onset of hair loss before puberty, a positive family history of AA, ophiasis pattern, associated nail changes, atopy, and Down syndrome (1). The total score of prognostic factors, calculated as a sum of factors related to poor prognosis, was much lower in responders than in non-responders. They denote disease activity and are a negative prognostic factor. Patients with extensive alopecia areata experienced more psychologic adverse effects than those with limited alopecia areata (P < 0.05). It is a non-scaring condition which can affect: the hair follicles - damage is not permanent ; the nails - 10-30% of patients (1) Alopecia areata can be categorized according to extent or pattern of hair loss. Thirteen out of 132 respondents (9.8%) recalled stressful events preceding hair loss. An investigation of poor prognostic factors in patients with alopecia areata and their relatives J Investig Dermatol Symp Proc . The cause of this condition is still unknown. 1-11 This is modified by genetic factors 12-18 and aggravated by emotional stress. Prognostic Factors in Mexican Patients with Patchy and Other Types of Alopecia Areata Conclusions: Body hair involvement is related to poor prognosis. Thus, it is widely used in patients with alopecia areata who are judged to have a poor prognosis, as well as for alopecia totalis, obtaining satisfactory outcomes.

People with alopecia areata may have a higher risk for: Another autoimmune disease such as thyroid disease or vitiligo (patches of lighter skin appear) 1996;334:1168-1172. The presence of alopecia totalis/universalis for >2 years, severe nail abnormalities, atopy, and onset in childhood (<5 years) are factors thought to be associated with a poor response to treatment. Alopecia areata (AA), first described by Celsus in the 1st century A.D., is a relatively common disease of unknown etiology. Türkderm (2015-03-01) . 2017 Dec;29(6):755-760. doi: 10.5021/ad.2017.29.6.755. What triggers alopecia areata?When alopecia areata develops, the body attacks its own hair follicles. Adherence to treatment is a modifiable prognostic factor associated with the course of AA in Mexican patients.Skin Appendage Disord Our aim was to make contribution to the epidemiological properties of AA in Turkey, and to determine the bad prognostic factors that affect the course of the disease. Nail involvement is not a poor prognosis factor in hair regrowth with tofacitinib treatment and there is no evident relationship between nail and hair responses. Other poor prognostic Laser factors include a positive family history, a long clinical Excimer lasers have been investigated as an alternative to duration of alopecia, presence of nail disease, presence photochemotherapy in patients with AA. The genetic basis of alopecia areata: HLA associations with patchy alopecia areata versus alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis. Authors Joong-Woon Choi 1 , Dong-Woo Suh 1 , Bark-Lynn Lew 1 , Woo-Young Sim 1 Affiliation 1 Department of Dermatology, Kyung … Young age at first presentation is associated with a poor prognosis. In addition, a long duration and early onset of disease are indicators of poor prognosis. Based on these two factors, a good response was obtained for all types of alopecia areata with a duration of 3 months or less before treatment and for the plurifocal type of alopecia areata with a duration of 4–6 months. Janus kinase inhibitors are being investigated in phase 3 clinical trials in adolescents and adults with AA. Relapse is common even after apparently successful regrowth after treatment. Adverse prognostic factors include nail abnormalities, atopy, onset at a young age, and severe forms of alopecia areata. Monini P, De Lellis L, Fabris M, Rigolin F, Cassai E. Kaposi's sarcoma\p=m-\ associated herpesvirus DNA sequences in prostate tissue and human se- men. Objective Even in the most severe cases of alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis, recovery may occur at some future date. The prognostic factors that influenced successful outcome were the disease duration before treatment and the type of alopecia areata. alopecia areata; Area Celsi; Circular hair loss; Hair Loss; Pélade History This section has been translated automatically. PMID: 29658800 [Indexed for MEDLINE] MeSH terms. Men are also more likely to have a family history of the hair loss condition. Factors that can indicate a poor prognosis for alopecia areata are large extent hair loss at presentation and a pattern of hair loss shaped like a wave around the circumference of the head called “ophiasis”. A person’s genetic makeup, combined with other factors, triggers this form of hair loss. Up to 50% of patients show regrowth within one year without treatment, but the course is unpredictable. The MTS+ high-concentration growth factor and PRP injection are effective for such alopecia totalis. Most evidence now suggests an autoimmune basis for the disease. Cesarman E, ChangY,Moore … An investigation of poor prognostic factors in patients with alopecia areata and their relatives Hatice Ergün Duman 1, Afet Akdağ Köse 1, Halim İşsever 2 1 Department Of Dermatology And Venereology, Istanbul Medical Faculty, University Of Istanbul, Istanbul, Turkey 2 Department Of Public Health, Istanbul Medical Faculty, University Of Istanbul, Istanbul, Turkey. AA affects all age groups and different ethnicities, with an equal sex distribution1,2. Poor prognostic factors for alopecia areata were extensive involvement, early age of onset, and Down's syndrome. Alopecia areata, Ezetimibe, Prognostic factor, Simvastatin INTRODUCTION Alopecia areata (AA) is a common, unpredictable, non-scar-ring form of hair loss without any visible signs of in- flammation or skin symptoms. The total scores of the prognostic factors were statistically di … Simvastatin/Ezetimibe Therapy for Recalcitrant Alopecia Areata: An Open Prospective Study of 14 Patients Ann Dermatol. What is the prognosis for alopecia areata? Alopecia areata. Over time, the number of alopecia areata increased over the entire scalp and the size of each one also increased. The extent of hair loss and patient age when first diagnosed appears to be a prognostic factor, being a less favorable prognosis with childhood-onset alopecia areata and ophiasis, and a later stage of onset correlates with less extensive alopecia 32).
