Application of the basic and specific classification on patterned hair loss in indians.

Agarwal S, Godse K, Mahajan A, Patil S, Nadkarni N - Int J Trichology (2013)

Bottom Line: We used the BASP classification to classify the PHL in the patients visiting our out-patient department in the period from June 2012 to May 2013. 763 patients were classified out of which 313 were females and 450 were males.The majority of the female patients were in the 3-5(th) decade of life and in males were in 4-6(th) decade.The BASP classification is, easily remembered, reproducible classification for the diagnosis and treatment for both male and female pattern alopecia.

ABSTRACT

Context: Several classifications for pattern hair loss (PHL) have been used over the years. The Norwood-Hamilton classification for men and Ludwig's classification for women is used commonly, but they have their limitations.

Aims: The objective of the following study is to evaluate the efficacy of the basic and specific (BASP) classification in Indian populations.

Subjects and methods: We used the BASP classification to classify the PHL in the patients visiting our out-patient department in the period from June 2012 to May 2013. 763 patients were classified out of which 313 were females and 450 were males.

Results: The majority of the female patients were in the 3-5(th) decade of life and in males were in 4-6(th) decade.

Conclusions: The BASP classification is, easily remembered, reproducible classification for the diagnosis and treatment for both male and female pattern alopecia.

Figure 1: Basic and specific classification

Mentions: The basic and specific (BASP) classification was designed by Lee et al.[10] This included four basic types and two specific types [Figure 1]. The basic type represents the shape of the anterior hairline and the specific type represents the density of hair on the frontal and vertex area. The final type is the combination of the basic and the specific type.[10]
