The disease develops when the immune system attacks the hair follicles, which results in hair loss. In the form of solitary or multiple patches of alopecia, the most prominent site affected is the scalp. Alopecia areata occurs in males and females of all ages, but in infancy there is always an onset. At some stage in their lives, over 147 million people worldwide have, had or may develop alopecia areata. Some important classes of Alopecia were involved by Alopecia areata, Moderate Transient AA, Transient AA, Alopecia Totalis, Ophiasis AA, Alopecia Universalis.
