dc.description.abstractAndrogenetic alopecia (AGA) is the commonest causes of hair loss. While most noticeable in men, women are also commonly affected. AGA affects roughly 30% of white males by the age of 30 years and 50% by the age of 50 years. 1-3 AGA occurs in all races however it is less common in Asians and African-American males. White males are four times more likely that black males to develop Hamilton stage VIII AGA. 4 The pattern of hair loss is sex dependant. Male pattern hair loss describes the temporal, and vertex balding seen in men due to AGA. Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) describes the mid frontal scalp hair thinning seen in women with AGA. Fifty seven percent of women over the age of 80 are affected with this pattern of hair loss.5 (Box 11.1)
