Androgenetic Alopecia
Abstract:   (3592 Views)

Androgenetic alopecia is an extremely common disorder affecting
70% of men and 40% of women in their life. Men present with
gradual thinning in the temporal areas, producing a reshaping of the anterior part of the hairline and progress to vertex balding. Women with androgenetic alopecia usually present with diffuse thinning on the crown. Only 2 drugs (minoxidil and finasteride) currently have FDA–approved indications for treatment of androgenetic alopecia.
Due to the frequency and the often significant impairment of life
perceived by the affected patients, diagnosis and treatment of
androgenetic alopecia is particularly important. This article briefly
reviews the definition, diagnosis and treatment options of
androgenetic alopecia.

Keywords: Androgenetic Alopecia, Minoxidil, Finasteride
