Con relacion al signo pull test, el 76.92% (IC 95% 69.8-83) fue negativo en FPHL y AA, el 10.06% (IC 95% 5.9-15.6) fue positivo en ETC y en alopecia mixta (FPHL mas ETC) (Tabla 2).

The presence of focal atrichia-erasersized areas where the patient doesn't have any hair-may be a useful clue to FPHL.
