Female pattern hair loss is a type of alopecia that leads to hair loss in women in the front and crown/vertex of the scalp. The condition is generally genetic and usually the patient can remember another female family member who had early hair loss.
This non-scarring alopecia can sometimes be reduced and even reversed with certain medications, but confirming the diagnosis and making sure other types of hair loss are not present, is critical.
