My age is 34 years old and I lost all my hair when I had 13 years. In the other hand my wife lost her hair when she was 21 years and now she's 30 years old.

Both have AAU (Alopecia Areata Universalis). Doctors says us that we have a inmunologic disorder and the result has been all lost hair. Alopecia Areata Universalis in both cases.

I don't have brothers and my parents, uncles, cousins, and grandparents haven't this problem. My wife has 2 brothers and they neither have this disorder. And neither her parents, uncles, ...

Now we don't have children yet. And it's for these reason we are concerned. Our fear is that our baby would have this problem too. In which percent we could transmit this disease to our child?. And for these reason we write you as expert in this investigation to explain the probability of our baby could be AAU or AA.

And let you know that we would be happy to join your research.

Dear User,

the alopecia areata universalis, due to immunologic disorders, is a multifactorial condition. The AAU is one of the most common human autoimmune diseases and it tipically shows a broad spectrum of severity (from patchy localized hair loss on the scalp to the complete absence of hair everywhere on the body). This condition is a multifactorial disease, so it is due to genetic and environmental factors. The exact chance to transmit the AAU is impossible to define. When compared with the general population, your child will have an increased risk to develop the AAU, but we cannot calculate it.
