Scarring alopecias are a group of hair disoders that cause permanent hair loss in the scalp. Although these conditions are common in my practice at Sunnybrook, they are actually quite rare in the general population. With topical and oral medications, we can help stop the hair loss in many patients. New research is leading to better treatment options for patients. The following video was prepared by Monica Matys of Sunnybrook Hospital in conjunction with the Sunnybrook Media department. I hope you will find it educational and informative.
