I had an allo stem cell transplant in 2007 for lymphoma and had graft versus host disease(GVHD) of the skin amongst other things. GVHD attacked my hair follicles all over my body and scalp while sparing some areas on the scalp with a non uniform (male balding) pattern. I have to constantly shave my head as if i let it grow; its very weird the places the hair grow. Is there any hope for me regrowing my very full and thick head of hair?
I would want to examine you, but GVHD can produce permanent partial hair loss.
So the question then is whether the balding spots support a transplanted hair graft. FUE placed into the affected area will address that issue. If the test transplant works, then the analysis of supply vs need of hair can be analyzed. The use of transplants in a test area (10 grafts harvested with FUE) will tell much about the spontaneous reversibility of the process and the existence of a scarring alopecia in the impacted areas.
