Alopecia Areata is a common autoimmune disorder that often results in unpredictable hair loss. Alopecia areata often develops suddenly, over the course of just a few days. Alopecia areata usually begins when clumps of hair fall out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp or other areas of the body. Alopecia areata is occasionally associated with any other external or internal medical problems. Most often these bald areas regrow their hair spontaneously.

Alopecia areata tends to occur most often in adults 30 to 60 years of age and rarely young children. 147 million people worldwide are affected by alopecia areata with a lifetime risk of 2.1%. Women and men are affected equally. About 10% of people with this condition may never regrow hair.

  • When white blood cells attack the cells in hair follicles
