Abstract

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) was first described by Kossard in 1994 in 6 postmenopausal women.(1) FFA remained rare during the 1990s but in the last 10-15 years it has become increasingly common, a phenomenon observed worldwide. The recent onset and apparent rising incidence of FFA suggest involvement of an environmental factor(s) in the aetiology. We previously reported a questionnaire study in women with FFA that asked about a wide range of medical, social and environmental exposures. This article is protected by copyright.
