Abstract

PEREIRA, José Marcos. Compulsive trichoses. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.5, pp.609-618. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000500012.

Due to its aesthetic importance, our hair is often a target of social manifestations, as in the case of bizarre hairstyling and hair dyes and sometimes even self-aggression. The most frequent acts of self-aggression are: trichotillomania, trichotemnomania, trichophagy, trichoteiromania, scratching-pseudoalopecia, trichocryptomania, trichorrexomania and neuropathic plica. In this article, the author discusses in detail the clinical characteristics and propedeutics of each disease, with emphasis on the psychiatric aspect of the patients.

Keywords : alopecia; hair; trichotillomania.
