The diagnosis of LAHS can in some cases be made on history and physical exam alone.
The traction applied should result in the painless and easy extraction of more than 10% of grasped hairs in a patient with LAHS. Removal of less than 10% of hair is a normal finding, as patients without LAHS typically have about 10% of their scalp hair in the telogen phase at any given time, which would result in removal during the hair-pull test.
The next LAHS talk, given by Stephen Taylor on the topic of the role of Garendon Park in WW2, will be held on Thursday 10th May, at 7.30pm, in Knightthorpe Road Methodist Church.
