Classic Case of DUPA

This is Diffuse Unpatterned alopecia (DUPA) which shows only 5 normal thickness hairs which are labeled in the photo (1-5) and the rest are miniaturized. This comes from the donor area which almost certainly is see-through. Note that this is best seen when the hairs are cut short because they can be easily counted as you can see on the long hairs on the left of the photo. Anything over 20% miniaturization is DUPA if it is the donor area.
