Attempts have been made to create ‘alopecia algorithms’ for arriving at a diagnosis, but in the author’s experience, such algorithms provide little assistance. The starting point for arriving at a histological diagnosis is recognition of an obvious or dominant histological finding, such as miniaturization of hairs, ‘missing’ hairs, or perifollicular inflammation. Unfortunately, no single histological feature is sufficient to establish a definitive diagnosis in any form of hair loss. However, a differential diagnosis based on one or two histological features will help to create a ‘short list’ of possible diagnoses.
