Common Hair Loss Problems in Children and Adolescents - Diagnosis

The diagnosis of hair loss problems in children is usually clinical. The doctor may send hair that is pulled or cut for examination under a microscope (hair mount). Blood tests may be required to exclude a secondary cause of hair loss. A scalp biopsy may rarely be needed to rule out more serious conditions e.g. lupus erythematosus.
