    The 1994 book "Disorders of Hair Growth: Diagnosis and Treatment" by Elise A. Olsen focused on the increasing prevalence of hair disorders in dermatology, emphasizing that hair loss is often a treatable condition. The book covered the basic sciences of hair biology and growth, and various conditions affecting hair, including male pattern baldness, hirsutism, loss due to medical conditions, trauma, drugs, and scalp conditions. It also discussed their surgical and medical management. Specific topics included the embryology and anatomy of the hair follicle, differentiation of the hair shaft, control of hair growth and pigmentation, and clinical tools for assessing hair growth. Various types of hair loss, such as hereditary and congenital hair loss, alopecia areata, anagen effluvium, telogen effluvium, androgenetic alopecia, and cicatricial alopecia were also discussed, along with hypertrichosis, hirsutism, and the surgical approach to hair loss.
