Hair loss with AIDS
Mar 21, 2003

do aids patients always have hair loss? or is it just side effect of some of the opportunistic diseases and/or treatments?

Response from Dr. Dezube

The vast majority of AIDS patients do not have hair loss. However, any severe illness can cause hair loss. Hair loss can indeed occur during opportunistic infections and/or from treatments. Fortunately most of these episodes of hair loss are temporary.
