Alopecia areata, also known as spot baldness, is believed to be an autoimmune disease. It occurs because your body fails to recognize its own cells, with subsequent immune-mediated destruction of the hair follicle.
With Alopecia, hair is lost from some or all areas of your body. Often it results in a few bald spots on the scalp, each about the size of a coin. However, some people can have spot baldness anywhere. In a few cases, all the hair on the scalp or all body hair is lost; in few of these, the hair loss is permanent.
Risk factors include a family history of the condition. People are generally otherwise healthy.
