Female Pattern Baldness or Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL)

The most common cause of alopecia in women. It presents itself with diffused non-scarring loss of hair and prominent thinning over the frontal, central, and parietal scalp. The frontal hairline is characteristically retained. The relationship between FPHL etiology and androgen or androgen receptor (AR) is less clear. Efforts to treat FPHL have mixed success and do not accomplish complete regrowth. Hair transplant surgery is emerging as an important option for patients with FPHL.
