Abstract: Chronic telogen effluvium is a recently described condition, in which there is persistent excessive hair shedding. Hairs are replaced as quickly as they shed, so patients never become bald. This condition is found primarily in women. We describe chronic telogen effluvium in a man; the diagnosis may have only become obvious because of his long hair.
