Dermatoscopic appearance of female androgenetic alopecia (sometimes called female pattern hair loss, FPHL). A mix of thick and thin (miniaturized) hairs are seen. The overall density is reduced making the scalp much more "see through" especially in the central scalp.

What is female "genetic" hair loss?

Female genetic hair loss is a frequent cause of hair loss in women. By age 60 about 40 % of women will have this condition.

Female genetic hair loss has many names, including "female pattern hair loss", "female androgenetic alopecia", "female balding", "female thinning", and the "female equivalent of male balding". The preferred term is female pattern hair loss or "FPHL". Women with FPHL develop hair loss in the centre of the scalp. Usually the very front of the scalp is not affected. Hair thinning can also occur at the sides and the back of the scalp as well. This type of thinning is referred to as diffuse loss.

This type of hair loss is very easily confused with other types of hair loss. Women with FPHL initially develop increased hair shedding. A common misdiagnosis at this stage is 'telogen effluvium' - causing extensive work up for things such as low iron or thyroid problems. FPHL causes shedding in the early stages.

An up close exam helps confirm the diagnosis. Hair follicle miniaturization (see arrow) is an important feature - hairs that were once 70 micrometers in diameter thin to well under 40 micrometers. The abundant normal groupings of 2 and 3 hairs coming out of a single pore are no longer present - most hair follicle pores contain just 1 or 2 hair bundles.

Diagnosis typically does not require a biopsy but rather a careful up close examination, review of the full history and review of blood tests results. Most women with FPHL have normal blood test results. Only 10-15 % have elevated androgens.
Treatment involves minoxidil, hormone blocking medications, low level laser, platelet rich plasma and hair transplantation.

Today, we will continue our discussion of how hair follicles change during the course of androgenetic alopecia (male pattern balding and female androgenetic alopecia). In general, hair follicles become thinner during the course of genetic hair loss. Prior to the onset of hair loss, most hairs in the scalp are thicker "terminal" hairs. These are typically 60 to 80 micrometers in diameter. During the thinning process, terminal hairs become "miniaturized" hairs and eventually "miniaturized" hairs become "vellus" hairs. Vellus hairs are always less than 30 micrometers in diameters. During the course of balding, terminal hairs become less common and vellus hairs become more common. During advanced balding, vellus hairs greatly outnumber terminal hairs in the areas of balding. In such a case, we say that the terminal to vellus ratio (T:V) ratio is much less than 1:2.
