Hair and Scalp Treatments A Practical Guide 1st ed- New Medical Book

Description

In many patients presenting with hair loss, diagnosis can be made (or at least suspected) through a detailed history and clinical examination. However, in doubtful cases, some diagnostic tools such as trichoscopy and trichogram may help to confrm diagnosis and, many times, avoid invasive methods, such as a cutaneous biopsy. When a biopsy is needed, trichoscopy is also helpful in selecting the best site for the procedure. This chapter will cover the basics of trichoscopic examination, trichoscopy-guided biopsies, and the trichogram.
