    TLDR Oral and topical tofacitinib can help regrow hair in people with severe alopecia areata.
    The document presents a case series of 11 patients with severe alopecia areata who were treated with oral tofacitinib, a Janus kinase inhibitor. These patients experienced significant hair regrowth. Additionally, the document reports a case of moderate to severe alopecia areata successfully treated with topical tofacitinib cream. This suggests that both oral and topical tofacitinib can be effective treatments for severe alopecia areata.
