We describe the case of a 46-year-old woman with androgenic alopecia, non-responsive to minoxidil, who initially benefited from finasteride. Due to only limited improvement after finasteride and persisting profound psychological distress resulting from androgenic alopecia, another 5-reductase inhibitor, dutasteride, was introduced. Clinical evaluation and trichogram were applied for assessment of dutasteride efficacy in this patient. Additionally, mean hair diameter was monitored by means of computer dermoscopy. After 6 months of therapy, significant improvement was observed and after 9 months the clinical diagnosis of androgenic alopecia could no longer be made in this patient. No side effects were observed. In conclusion, theoretical data and our experience in this case show that dutasteride might develop into a true alternative in treatment of androgenic alopecia.
    it is very interesting.How long she has been having androgenetic alopecia? which is better aldactone or dutasteride

    With so many different types of hair loss and treatments available. It does get a bit daunting. Do your research and choose your treatment choice knowledgeably. I've read to many stories where women suffered further because of bad treatments. Unnecessarily damaging their hair even more. You've gotten some good advice here. Good luck.

    Women or children should not use Avodart™ or dutasteride. Also, women who are pregnant or may be pregnant should not handle Avodart™ for fear of potential risks to a male fetus.
