Alopecia areata barbae is hair loss as patches in the beard area.
Those men suffering from spotted hair loss on the scalp may or may not develop A. areata barbae. The disorder can also affect apparently perfectly healthy men having no problem on the scalp. In some cases the disorder may resolve by itself and disappear. In some men AA. barbae may recur. The affected area may remain as a patch or progress to cover the entire beard. In rare cases there may be involvement of nails like pitting, thinning or detachment from the nail bed. In rare cases burning, itching or tingling sensation is experienced in the affected skin.
Causes of alopecia areata barbaeThough it known that autoimmune reactions are the cause of hair loss, it is not still clearly understood why the hair loss appears as patches on the scalp and/or beard area and why particularly certain areas are only being targeted.

Diagnosis and differential diagnosisDifferential diagnosis has to be done to rule out certain conditions wherein hair loss occurs in the beard area. Infection or inflammation of the follicles as in tinea barbae and folliculitis barbae may sometimes cause temporary or permanent damage to hair follicles and the affected area may appear as hairless patch after resolution of the condition.

Treatment optionsEarly diagnosis and treatment can prevent aggravation and mental stress. Shaving daily is the immediate treatment. Immunosuppression of cytokines responsible for the inflammatory reactions is the best treatment option. Immunosuppression causes inhibitory effect on the autoimmunity at the site of AA. barbae.
