Compulsively pulling out one’s own hair. Causes significant distress and persists despite attempts to
stop. Presents with areas of thinning hair or baldness on any area of the body, most commonly the
scalp. Incidence highest in childhood but spans all ages. Treatment: psychotherapy is first line;
medications (eg, clomipramine) may be considered.
