Promising Results with 2% Minoxidil Solution in Loose Anagen Hair Syndrome in a Pediatric Age Group: A Case Report

Dr. Mapare A. C. | Dr. Aishwarya Gaikwad

Abstract: Loose anagen hair syndrome (LAHS) is a relatively infrequent cause of hair loss, characterized by poor anchoring of anagen hairs to the follicle, resulting in frequent painless hair loss with gentle pulling. Topical minoxidil may benefit LAHS patients, particularly those with severe symptoms. We reported 2 cases of childhood LAHS (8 - 10 years, boys) successfully treated with topical treatment with minoxidil 2% solution. The successful use of minoxidil is encouraging and may be a reasonable first - line therapy for patients with disease at the severe end of the LAH syndrome spectrum.
