Baldness and hypotrichosis can have many causes, including fungal infection, traumatic damage, such as by compulsive pulling, as a result of radiotherapy or chemotherapy, and as a result of nutritional deficiencies such as iron, and as a result of autoimmune phenomena, including alopecia areata and hair loss associated with systemic lupus erythematosus.
