Baldness

Male pattern Baldness/ Female pattern Baldness
Common "male pattern" baldness results from the combination of adequate androgen (gonad derived hormone) levels and the appropriate genetic background. The term androgenetic alopecia is appropriate and makes reference to both requisite factors: androgens and a genetic predisposition. This affects both men and women process but the patterns of hair loss are quite distinct. In males hair loss usually occurs in the front temporal and vertex (top) areas. In females, it tends to be more diffuse and generalized.
Androgenetic alopecia results from transformation of terminal hair follicles into vellus-like (immature) follicles, which then become atrophic and waste away. The progression is gradual and the process may even become noticeable after puberty in either sex.
