There are three kinds of alopecia - alopecia areata, which causes hair to fall out in small clumps; alopecia totalis, which causes the loss of most or all of the hair on the head, and alopecia universalis, in which all body hair, including eyebrows, eye lashes, facial and body hair, falls out
AA can be classified according to the extent of involvement into patchy AA, alopecia totalis (AT), and alopecia universalis (AU).
