Hair disorders represent an extraordinarily exhaustive and serious chapter in dermatology. In many patients they cause serious mental and health problems. Alopecia areata is one of the most frequent types of hair loss. The therapy uses topical and systemic preparations as well as various combinations thereof. The paper comments on the result of a Multicentre International Trial to assess topical application of a preparation containing Capixil BG and Poliplant Capillar complex in patients with alopecia areata.
