Comparison of Dermoscopic Findings in Female Androgenetic Alopecia and Telogen Effluvium and Female Controls in a Tertiary Care Center.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2022 May;15(5):29-34

Dr K. Kaur is a junior resident at the Department of Dermatology Venereology & Leprosy at Sri Guru Ram Das Institute of Medical Sciences & Research in Amritsar, India.

Background: Female androgenetic alopecia (FAGA) is a patterned hair loss caused by progressive miniaturization of hair follicles. This leads to reduction in the number and thickness of hairs, especially in the central, frontal, and parietal scalp regions. Telogen effluvium (TE) is characterized by diffuse hair loss within months of a significant systemic stressor because of premature follicular transition from the anagen to the telogen. Read More

Ischemia-Modified Albumin-A Potential New Marker of Oxidative Stress in Dermatological Diseases.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 May 17;58(5). Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Dermatology, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 020021 Bucharest, Romania.

There is growing evidence that oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of numerous conditions, including dermatological diseases. Various markers are available to assess oxidative stress, but none of these can be considered the ideal marker. Recent studies have shown that ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is not only an indicator of ischemia, but also a marker of oxidative stress. Read More

Int J Cosmet Sci 2022 May 6. Epub 2022 May 6.

Monasterium Laboratory, Münster, Germany.

Objectives: Hair loss and reduction in hair volume are hallmarks of hair disorders, such as telogen effluvium, or male or female pattern hair loss, and hair ageing, which can cause severe distress in both men and women. Common anti-hair loss drugs carry some side effects; therefore, novel, safer approaches targeting milder phenotypes are highly advocated. In this context, we investigated an extract of the alpine plant Edelweiss, Leontopodium alpinum var. Read More

Complementary Strategies to Promote Hair Regrowth in Post-COVID-19 Telogen Effluvium.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2022 22;15:735-743. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

Department of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, "Carol Davila" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Bucharest, Romania.

Post-COVID-19 telogen effluvium has been largely reported as a sequela in the post-acute phase of COVID-19, causing major emotional distress among the affected patients. The affected individuals are further exposed to a vast amount of misinformation from the internet and social media and it is important for physicians to be familiar with the phenomenon and provide appropriate counselling to their patients regarding this condition. This article aims to review the evidence-based complementary strategies that can help enhance hair regrowth after post-COVID-19 hair loss, from psychological support and patient education to the importance of optimal nutrition and potential indications and benefits of oral nutritional supplementation, as well as the role of both topical and injectable hair growth stimulators.

The role of autologous micrografts injection from the scalp tissue in the treatment of COVID-19 associated telogen effluvium: Clinical and trichoscopic evaluation.

Dermatol Ther 2022 Apr 29:e15545. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Dermatology & Venereology Department, Faculty of Medicine, Tanta University, Tanta, Egypt.

The clinical presentation of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19) varies from asymptomatic infection to a life-threatening, multiorgan disease. One of these manifestations is telogen effluvium (TE) which is characterized by diffuse hair loss occurring in patients previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 and lasts ~3 months, after which excessive hair loss follows. Hair follicles are known to contain a well-characterized niche for adult stem cells which is the bulge containing epithelial and melanocytic stem cells. Read More

Relationship between hair shedding and systemic inflammation in COVID-19 pneumonia.

Ann Med 2022 12;54(1):869-874

Department of Cardiac-Thoracic-Vascular Sciences and Public Health, Respiratory Pathophysiology Unit, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.

A higher risk for COVID-19 infection and severity for men compared to women has been described since the beginning of the pandemic. The role of androgens has been recently highlighted as they control two key steps of coronavirus infection mediated through the transmembrane protease serin 2 (TMPRRS2) and the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor in the lung tissue. Furthermore, a high incidence of androgenic alopecia among males with COVID-19 disease have been reported. Read More

Alopecia syphilitica, from diagnosis to treatment.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2022 26;35(2):180-183. Epub 2022 Jan 26.

Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York.

Alopecia syphilitica (AS) is an uncommon manifestation of secondary syphilis, with a prevalence that ranges from 3% to 7%. It is a nonscarring alopecia that can present in a diffuse pattern, a moth-eaten pattern, or a mixed subtype. Due to its low prevalence and similar presentation to other forms of alopecia such as alopecia areata, telogen effluvium, and tinea capitis, dermatologists must maintain a high degree of suspicion for prompt diagnosis.

Department of Dermatology, Wake Forest School of Medicine, 4618 Country Club Road, Winston-Salem, NC, 27104, USA.

While current studies have supported oral minoxidil as a novel, adjunctive therapy in non-scarring forms of alopecia, there continues to be limited data on oral minoxidil for these conditions. To assess oral minoxidil use in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia and telogen effluvium, a multi-center, retrospective analysis was conducted in 105 adult patients treated for androgenetic alopecia and/or telogen effluvium with oral minoxidil (dose range 0.625-2.

Considerations for cutaneous physiologic changes of pregnancy that fail to resolve postpartum.

Int J Dermatol 2022 Feb 7. Epub 2022 Feb 7.

Professor of Medicine, Director of Dermatology, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Columbus, OH, USA.

Pregnancy prompts many adaptive and unique physiologic modifications, with cutaneous changes being possibly the most noticeable. These cutaneous changes are of interest to physicians, since they must be diagnosed as anticipated normal physiologic changes or potentially harmful and managed accordingly. Research has been conducted on physiologically normal and abnormal cutaneous manifestations of pregnancy but is lacking in regard to the persistence of these changes after delivery. Read More
