Renu KandpalInternational Journal of Trichology 2019 11(4):173-176 Alopecia universalis (AU) is a condition which causes generalized hair loss of the body. It is postulated that autoimmunity plays an important role in its pathogenesis. It is characterized by the involvement of multiple inflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha and multiple interferons. Hence, biologics like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) antagonist may be used to block this inflammatory process.
