Alopecia totalis and vitiligo in common variable immunodeficiency.
Spickett G., Prentice AG., Wallington T., Webster AD., Chapel H.
Three cases of severe and irreversible alopecia occurring in patients with common variable immunodeficiency are described. In all three cases, hair loss developed after the diagnosis of immune deficiency; one of the patients also had extensive vitiligo. A fourth patient had vitiligo in the absence of alopecia. No change in the alopecia or vitiligo was noted in any patient as a result of immunoglobulin replacement therapy.
