Sparse Hair (decreased hair growth)

Understanding hair related symptoms and features

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.

Hair is a part of the integumentary system of the body, a system that includes not only hair but also skin and nails too. The integumentary system acts to protect our body from external threats or injury.

Generally, symptoms affecting the hair can be seen with the eye. Although diagnosing a hair-related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.

Symptoms relating to the hair affect hair on all parts of the body, including the scalp, torso, and face. They may also affect specific features of the face, including the eyebrows and eyelashes. When looking specifically at symptoms relating to the hair, other aspects such as the amount, distribution, thickness, texture, and color should also be taken into consideration.

"Our road to a rare disease diagnosis was a 5-year journey that I can only describe as trying to take a road trip with no map. We didn’t know our starting point. We didn’t know our destination. Now we have hope."
