Abstract

Trichotillomania is a condition characterized by the pulling of hair from anywhere on the body and is classified as an obsessive-compulsive and related disorder. Patients with hair disorders are commonly referred to psychodermatology services, and can represent a management challenge. Few publications exist that report outcomes for patients with trichotillomania in real clinical practice. We report 12 such patients seen within our own psychodermatology service, who were managed using a variety of treatment strategies. The rate of defaulting of appointments was high, but improvements were seen in patients engaging with services.
