The classic form of androgenetic alopecia in men

Classical androgenetic alopecia in men is characterized by loss of hair on the templesthinning of hair on the crown of the head and a gradual recession of the hairline. Even in advanced stages, a strip of normal density remains in the lateral temporal regions and on the rear (occipital) part of the scalp. Total hair loss rarely appears.

Androgenetic alopecia in women

Androgenetic alopecia in women usually occurs as diffuse thinning of the hair, without recession of the hairline. In most cases, hair thinning is more intense at the top of the scalp. Unlike in men, total loss of hair in the affected area is rarely observed.

Techniques for diagnosing androgenetic alopecia

The diagnosis is, basically, clinical. The trichogram is one of the oldest techniques for the diagnosis of androgenetic alopecia and shows a very large increase in telogen and dystrophic hairs, compared to anagen hairs. A full haematological and hormonal check is advisable, in order to exclude underlying disease, especially in female androgenetic alopecia. Trichoscopy is a new method, diagnostically equivalent to dermoscopy.
