Diffuse alopecia is a condition characterized by a decrease in the hair density all over the scalp. Diffuse alopecia is a type of hair loss that does not result in complete baldness. Diffuse alopecia is more frequent in the elderly people.

Anything that interrupts the normal hair cycle can trigger diffuse hair loss. Triggers include a wide variety of physiologic or emotional stresses, nutritional deficiencies, and endocrine imbalances. Generally, with diffuse alopecia, hair become dull and scattered, thus giving the hair a sparse looks. Diffuse alopecia can be caused by many factors including: hormones, such as hyperthyroidism during or after childbirth; drugs, such as during chemotherapy or radiation therapy, nutritional deficiencies, a poor diet or poor absorption of nutrients, stress or nervous shock.Diffuse hair loss can affect both sexes at any age.Finding the cause, or trigger, of the hair loss requires a thorough history and examination and will enable appropriate treatment.

Triggers include a wide variety of physiologic or emotional stresses, nutritional deficiencies, and endocrine imbalances. Loss of telogen-phase hairs is the most common.

Physiologic stress

Physiologic stress such as high fever, surgical trauma, hemorrhage and chronic systemic illness, are well known to cause telogen effluvium 2 to 3 months after the insult. Telogen hair shedding can be experienced 2 to 4 months after childbirth (telogen gravidarum).

Emotional stress

The relationship between emotional stress and hair loss is difficult to ascertain, and hair loss itself is stressful to the patient. Acute reversible hair loss occurring with great stress is also reported. Everyday stresses are likely not enough to trigger hair loss.

Medical conditions

Both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism can cause diffuse telogen hair loss that is usually reversible once the euthyroid state is restored. Telogen hair loss has also been reported in autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus and dermatomyositis, as well as in chronic infections. Inflammatory disorders such as psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and allergic contact dermatitis can all cause diffuse telogen hair loss.Chronic systemic disorders such as systemic amyloidosis, hepatic failure, chronic renal failure, inflammatory bowel disease, and lymphoproliferative disorders can cause telogen hair shedding

Dietary triggers

Nutritional causes of diffuse telogen hair loss are zinc deficiency and iron deficiency. Severe protein, fatty acid and caloric restriction with chronic starvation and crash dieting can also induce diffuse telogen hair loss. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin in cell growth, and vitamin D deficiency may be associated with diffuse hair loss. Malabsorption syndromes and pancreatic disease can precipitate telogen hair shedding.

Drugs that cause hair loss

Drugs can cause telogen hair loss that starts about 12 weeks after starting the drug and continues while on the drug. Drugs known to cause telogen effluvium are oral contraceptive pills, androgens, retinoids, beta-blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, and the anticoagulants heparin and warfarin (Coumadin). Changing or stopping any oral contraceptive can precipitate telogen hair shedding. Oral contraceptives containing an androgenic progestin and hormonal replacement therapy with high-dose progesterone can cause telogen hair shedding.
