“…One limitation of this study is that AGA may be affected by many genes that have not yet been identified; twin studies have shown that the AGA condition is heritable, and a family history of AGA has been included in our analysis for this reason. However, there are still many findings [69], [70], [71], [72], [73], [74], [75], [76], [77], [78], [79], [80], [81], [82], [83], [84], [85], [86], [87], [88] that suggest that heritable and epigenetic [69], [89] differences also play a role in alopecia; this may replace the classical discussion of the roles of genetic and environmental factors in alopecia.…”

“…Occurrence of AA in identical twins [72][73][74][75][76][77] or siblings [78] as well as identification of families with several generations of members with AA [71,79] suggest that this may be an inherited disease. Anywhere between 3.4 and 42% of patients claim a family history of AA [80][81][82][83][84][85], although the general consensus is around 20%.…”

“…[4] The familial incidence is 10-42%[5] and in monozygotic twins is 50%. [7] Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder. [89] The disease appears as a coin shaped patch anywhere or band-like lesion over occipital (ophiasis) or fore head (reverse ophiasis), which may progress into alopecia totalis or universalis.…”
