Frontal fibrosing alopecia

Recommended Posts

One cross-sectional study including 99 women with Frontal fibrosing alopecia presented a higher prevalence of rosacea than did controls. [1]

"Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia is the frontotemporal hairline recession and eyebrow loss in postmenopausal women that is associated with perifollicular erythema, especially along the hairline. It is considered to be a clinical variant of lichen planopilaris. Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia has been most often reported in post-menopausal women with higher levels of affluence and a negative smoking history. Autoimmune disease is found in 30% of patients." Wikipedia

Frontal fibrosing alopecia may be a co-existing condition with rosacea.
