Alopecia areata is an unpredictable, recurrent, non-scarring hair loss, which can affect any hairy area, but also the nails.

It is an autoimmune disease and usually occurs in the form of round defrosting plaques on the scalp and sometimes with a total loss of head or body hair. It can affect people of all ages, but it is more common in children.

It is a complex polygenic disease. There is an interaction between genetic and environmental factors (infectious agents, stress), which mobilize the disease.

The disease is difficult to treat effectively and for this reason the type of treatment must be individualized. The doctor, having gained extensive experience in the largest center (for scalp diseases) in Germany, after evaluating each patient and taking into account laboratory parameters, chooses the appropriate treatment each time.
