Treatment Results for Patients With Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA): a Multicenter Prospective Study


Brief description of study

The objective of this study is to examine photos of CCCA patients taken before and after treatment to compare treatment outcomes between different treatment groups

Detailed Study Description

Treatment groups that patients will be randomized to include 1) topical steroid plus oral antibiotic group, and topical minoxidil after 8 months 2) topical steroid plus intralesional steroid group and topical minoxidil after 8 months. Both these regimens are used as the first-line treatments by clinicians. The objective of this study is to examine photos of CCCA patients taken before and after treatment to compare treatment outcomes between different treatment groups.

In this study, the investigators are looking to determine how standard treatment affects the outcome of central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia; to determine if topical steroid with With Doxycycline has better outcome than topical steroids with intralesional steroids in central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia, and to determine how the addition of topical minoxidil as a treatment changes the outcome of central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia.
