ABSTRACT

A study was carried out to explore the effectiveness of pimecrolimus Cream 1% used twice daily (BID) for the treatment of alopecia areata. Ten patients were included in this study all of them were males. Patients were used pimecrolimus cream 1% monotherapy BID for at least 2 months and who had photographs taken at baseline and after one month and after two months of treatments. The total effected surface area (cm) of alopecia areata in the baseline was measured by metric tape and followed up for comparison. Results revealed that the response to pimecrolimus cream 1% BID was about 20-40% decrease in the size of patches after one month of treatment but all patients were completely cured (100%) after two months of treatments. In conclusion: the pimecrolimus cream 1% could be used by dermatologist for the treatment of alopecia areata.
