The psychosomatic symptoms of patients afflicted by alopecia were analysed on the basis of the examination and observation of a total of 579 patients provided with wigs. This investigation was carried out at a hair treatment centre in Bremen visited by suffers of this illness, and which has provided treatment for such patients since March 1965.
