BOF: 128

A 30-year-old female who is known to be hypothyroid and is on thyroxine presents complaining of loss of hair.

On examination there are localised patches of hair loss with short stubby hair similar to an exclamation mark at the edges of the lesions.

The cause of hair loss in this patient is:

a)      The patient has been non-compliant with her treatment and failed to take thyroxine

b)      Telogen effluvium

c)      The patient has hypothyroidism secondary to pan-hypopituitarism which has been uncovered by treatment with thyroxine

d)      Alopecia areata

e)      Secondary to iron deficiency caused by menorrhagia on account of hypothyroidism
