Alopecia Areata

What is Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that affects hair follicles and causes hair loss. It usually manifests as distinct bald patches on the scalp, but it can trigger hair loss in any hair-bearing part of the body.

Alopecia is a Latin word that means “hair loss,” and areata refers to the patchiness. Alopecia areata is a broad term for a variety of conditions, including diffuse alopecia areata, ophiasis inversus, alopecia areata Universalis, or totalis.

What Are The Symptoms Of Alopecia Areata?

Possible Alopecia Areata symptoms include:

What Causes Alopecia Areata?

In alopecia areata, the immune system attacks hair follicles by mistake, resulting in inflammation. Researchers believe that both genetic and environmental (non-genetic) could be responsible for this immunological attack on hair follicles.

For example, according to the studies, genes that encode the “natural killer cell receptor D” (NKG2D) have been found to be responsible for the development of Alopecia Areata. While environmental factors that triggers alopecia areata include disease, physical injury and emotional stress. 

How Is Alopecia Areata Diagnosed?

Doctors can easily identify alopecia areata by evaluating symptoms during examination. Under a microscope, they may assess the extent of hair loss and analyze hairs from affected regions.

After an initial clinical examination, if the physician is unable to make a diagnosis, a skin biopsy may be performed.  Other tests to identify this condition include Dermoscopy and Hair Pull test. A physician may also recommend a blood test to rule out other autoimmune disorders.
