Pattern hair loss is the most common form of hair loss in both women and men. Male pattern hair loss, also termed male androgenetic alopecia (M-AGA), is an androgen-dependent trait that is predominantly genetically determined. Androgen-mediated mechanisms are probably involved in FPHL in some women but the evidence is less strong than in M-AGA; and other non-androgenic pathways, including environmental influences, may contribute to the aetiology. Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified several genetic loci for M-AGA and have provided better insight into the underlying biology. However, the role of heritable factors in female pattern hair loss (FP...
