Alopecia Areata

Read in Hindi

Alopecia areata, or loss of hair in patches, is the commonest type of hair loss. It can affect any hair-bearing area of the body, albeit the term often connotes patchy hair loss from the scalp. Among hair disorders, none arouses as much interest as alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder — a condition in which the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks our body’s own cells (in this case, hair follicles) and destroys them.
