Hair Rounds Fall 2018
Great afternoon working with our local dermatology residents and our amazing patient volunteers who gave up their time to help teach physicians about hair loss. We learned about scalp dysesthesias and the differential diagnosis of patients with marked scalp symptoms. We discussed the lymphocytic scarring alopecias including lichen planopilaris and frontal fibrosing alopecia and learned about the beneficial role of antiandrogens and retinoids in treating FFA. We finished with a discussion of female androgenetic alopecia and reviewed the definitions of miniaturized and vellus hairs. We finished the afternoon by reviewing what we know about the risk of cancer with antiandrogens such as finasteride and spironolactone.
