Abstracts
Alopecia areata is a nonscarring, inflammatory hair loss on the scalp, and/or body. Etiology and pathogenesis are still unknown. The most common affected site is the scalp. Histopathology
is characterized by an increased number of the catagen and telogen follicles along with the presence of inflammatory lymphocytic infiltrate in the peribulbar region. Corticosteroids
are the most popular drugs for the treatment of this disease. Clinical features, histological data as well as modern treatment options will be discussed in this article.
