Alopecia

Alopecia is a condition where the immune system, for mysterious reasons, attacks the hair roots in a region, causing hair loss in small, round patches.  These patches may go away on their own, or may last for many years.  Nearly 2% of people in the U.S. will develop Alopecia in their lifetime. Sometimes alopecia results in the loss of all scalp hair or all body hair.
