Alopecia areata is a disorder related to loss of hair. It is an autoimmune disorder, wherein the immune system attacks the hair follicles and induces hair fall. Alopecia areata causes certain signs and symptoms such as bald patches, sudden loss of hair, excessive hair-fall, and itching on scalp. It leads to different types of alopecia diseases such as alopecia totalis, alopecia semiuniversalis, and alopecia universalis, where an individual suffers from facial to body hair loss. The risk factors associated with alopecia areata are genetic inheritance, stress, viral infections, or vitamin D deficiency. Research institutes and laboratories are focusing on delivery of alopecia areata treatment through different therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. Modulation of unique technology and approach toward diagnosis of alopecia areata ensures better functional ability to cure the common types of hair fall diseases. However, new developments in pharmological and hair treatment approaches allow imaging of the disorder at the cellular and molecular level. This is paving the way for early diagnosis and treatment of early hair fall disorder.
