Few dermatologic problems carry as many emotional overtones as hair loss in women, which is by far the most common hair problem encountered in daily clinical practice. Fortunately, a specific diagnosis can usually be established through the application of appropriate examinations and tests, and treatment suited to the diagnosis is likely to control the problem. This comprehensively illustrated monograph provides both specialists and primary care physicians with the practical know-how required for successful management of hair loss in female patients of all ages. The book opens by critically examining various myths about hair loss.
