ABSTRACT
Introduction: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is hereditary and androgen dependent, progressive thinning of the scalp hair that follows a defined pattern. Aim ot the work: is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mesotherapy using dutasteride in treatment of androgenetic alopecia in males. Materials and Methods: Ninety male patients were randomly assigned into three groups; group A containing 30 patients who received pure dutasteride, group B of another 30 patients who received dutasteride containing solution and group C of the remaining 30 patients who received saline. Each group was given nine mesotherapy sessions. Assessment was done using trichogram, independent observer assessment of photographs and patients self assessment together with evaluation of possible systemic absorption using semenogram and serum dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Result: Statistical analysis of the thrichogram results, the effect on semenogram and the serum level of dihydrotestosterone.showed that dutastride containing solution was the best. Conclusion: Mesotherapy using dutasteride is a good option for treatment of male pattern hair loss; resulting in reduction or cessation of hair loss and promotion of new hair growth.
