Abstract

Our dermatology practice, having a population bias due to its location in an historic “goitre belt” of the Midwest United States, has placed special emphasis upon problems of hair growth for over 20 years. Our records have been totally computerized for about 8 years, facilitating a retrospective study of 500 consecutive cases presenting with a chief complaint of hair loss of any kind. The information entered into this analysis consisted in part of the results of a survey which we utilize in the evaluation of all hair loss patients. We have included within this survey the significant parameters of family history along with those of personal hsabits and health.
