Graft versus Host Disease Presenting as Fibrosing Alopecia in a Pattern Distribution: A Model for Pathophysiological Understanding of Cicatricial Pattern Hair Loss.

Int J Trichology 2018 Mar-Apr;10(2):80-83

Center for Dermatology and Hair Diseases Professor Trüeb, Zurich-Wallisellen, Switzerland.

A case of cutaneous graft versus host disease (GvHD) presenting as fibrosing alopecia in a pattern distribution (FAPD) is discussed, possibly providing a mechanistic model for a better understanding of the pathogenic events underlying cicatricial pattern hair loss. The implication of a follicular inflammation and fibrosis associated with patterned hair loss has emerged from several independent studies. Eventually, Zinkernagel and Trüeb reported a peculiar type of cicatricial pattern hair loss with histopathological features consistent with lichen planopilaris (LPP) associated with androgenetic alopecia (AGA).

Scalp Surgery: Quantitative Analysis of Follicular Unit Growth.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2015 Oct 20;3(10):e539. Epub 2015 Oct 20.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Plastic Surgery Division, University of Parma, Parma, Italy; and the Cutaneous, Mininvasive, Regenerative and Plastic Surgery Unit, Parma University Hospital, Parma, Italy.

Unlabelled: Over the years, different kinds of hair transplantation have been compared in an attempt to overcome male pattern alopecia and, at the same time, maximize both the survival and growth rate of grafted hair. In this study, we have assessed the survival and growth rate of follicular units (FU) in an in vitro model, as compared with that of conventional hair micrografts, to experimentally evaluate and elaborate on the differences between these 2 approaches in hair transplantation procedures.

Methods: Group A (control; n = 100 follicles) was composed of hair micrografts, whereas FUs were assigned to Group B (experimental; n = 100 follicles, n = 35 FUs). Read More

Hair transplantation in burn scar alopecia.

Scars Burn Heal 2015 Jan-Dec;1:2059513115607764. Epub 2015 Oct 1.

Farjo Hair Institute, Manchester and London, UK.

Treating patients with burn alopecia or hair loss can often be a challenge to both the surgeon and the patient. As with other reconstructive procedures that are required in the post-burn phase, this is usually a multiple stage process often requiring surgery over several years. This is because graft take is not as reliable as in healthy non-scarred skin and may need repeating to achieve adequate density. Read More

Use of nape and peri-auricular hair by follicular unit extraction to create soft hairlines and temples: my experience with 128 patients.

Authors:
Sanusi Umar

Aesthet Surg J 2015 Nov 22;35(8):903-9. Epub 2015 Sep 22.

Dr Umar is a Clinical Instructor of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles, CA.

Background: Hairlines and temples can look unnatural due to coarseness of the safe donor area of transplanted scalp hair. Although the thinner caliber of nape and peri-auricular (NPA) hair would be ideal to create softer hairlines, they have not been used mainly because of concerns that they are nonpermanent.

Objective: We assessed the outcome of NPA hair transplanted to hairlines and temples in selected patients. Read More

Enhanced restoration of in situ-damaged hairs by intradermal transplantation of trichogenous dermal cells.

J Tissue Eng Regen Med 2017 04 17;11(4):977-988. Epub 2015 Feb 17.

PhoenixBio Co. Ltd, Hiroshima, Japan.

We developed a nude rat model for determining the capacity of trichogenous cells to restore in vivo-damaged hair follicles (HFs). A surgical scalpel was inserted into the rat's dermis to generate the in vivo-damaged pelage HFs, the HFs whose lower parts were lost, but the upper parts containing sebaceous and bulge regions remained intact. Dermal papilla cells (DPCs) and dermal sheath cells (DSCs) from EGFP transgenic rat vibrissae were propagated in culture, and each alone (DPC or DSC) or a mixture (DPC/DSC) was transplanted into the intradermal path made by a scalpel.

Hair restoration approaches for early onset male androgenetic alopecia.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2013 Sep;12(3):223-31

Cosmolaser Medical Centre, Sharjah, UAE.

Society places great emphasis on the presence of hair. Some degree of hair loss is accepted as a normal part of the aging process, in line with the observation that more than 50% of men will develop androgenetic alopecia by the age of 50 years. However, it is possible to understand the psychosocial isolation and distress felt by men with a strong familial predisposition to androgenetic alopecia, who tend to display hair loss in their late teens or twenties.

Study of the behaviour of lesional and nonlesional skin of canine recurrent flank alopecia transplanted to athymic nude mice.

Vet Dermatol 2013 Oct 19;24(5):507-e120. Epub 2013 Jul 19.

Department of Medicine and Clinical Biology of Small Animals, Ghent University, Salisburylaan 133, 9820, Merelbeke, Belgium.

Background: Recurrent flank alopecia is a clinically well-described skin disorder in dogs. The pathomechanism of the disease is difficult to study because it undergoes spontaneous regression.

Hypothesis/objectives: To study the behaviour of xenografts in mice in order to assess the feasibility of a reproducible experimental model and to investigate local or systemic causes of canine recurrent flank alopecia (cRFA). Read More

Hair restoration surgery: the state of the art.

Aesthet Surg J 2013 Jan 20;33(1):128-51. Epub 2012 Nov 20.

Department of Plastic Surgery, The Johns Hopkins Hospital and School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Hair restoration is a highly sophisticated subspecialty that offers significant relief to patients with hair loss. An improved understanding of the aesthetics of hair loss and cosmetic hair restoration, hair anatomy and physiology, and the development of microvascular surgical instrumentation has revolutionized the approach to surgical hair restoration since the original description. Additional elements that contribute to the current state of the art in hair restoration include graft size, site creation, packing density, and medical control of hair loss. Read More

Amelanocytic anhidrotic alopecia areata-like phenotype after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant.

Arch Dermatol 2012 Aug;148(8):931-4

Section of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, The University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois 60637, USA.

Background: Diffuse alopecia areata or canities subita is a rare variant of alopecia in which hair loss is associated with regrowth of white hairs and possible lightening of the skin. Preferential loss of pigmented hair in this disorder may be related to the melanin pigment system and/or melanocytes. Acquired generalized anhidrosis can be associated with autoimmune disease, cancer, graft-vs-host disease, or medications or can be idiopathic. Read More

Current status of hair restoration surgery.

Int Surg 2011 Oct-Dec;96(4):345-51

Damkerng Hair Transplantation Clinic, ISHRS Approved Fellowship Training Center, Bangkok, Thailand.

Hair restoration has emerged as a subspecialty of aesthetic plastic surgery practiced by a wide range of doctors including plastic surgeons, general surgeons, dermatologists, and even general practitioners. As a current trend, most doctors practice "Ultrarefined follicular unit hair transplantation" in which the entire procedure is done precisely with minimal donor scar. In selected cases, Mega or even Giga sessions are now done with natural appearance and almost undetectable scar, in a single session with good density. Read More

Paul T Rose

Facial Plast Surg 2011 Aug 26;27(4):366-77. Epub 2011 Jul 26.

Academic Alliance in Dermatology, Tampa, Florida 33609, USA.

Hair restoration began as a result of the fortuitous finding by Dr. Norman Orentreich that hair follicles taken from an area of nonbalding scalp could be implanted into an area of male pattern hair loss and continue to grow terminal hair. Since that time, hair transplants have progressed from the use of large plugs to the use of follicular units (normally occurring clusters of hairs). Read More
