Women with frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) were found to have a higher prevalence of autoimmune disease, thyroid hormone abnormalities, and estrogen deficiency compared with the general population, according to study research published in the British Journal of Dermatology.

The study included phenotypic data from 711 women (median age, 66) living in the United Kingdom and of Eurasian ancestry with a diagnosis of FFA.
