My son was just diagnosed with alopecia areata

Question:
My son was just diagnosed with alopecia areata. Can you explain what this is and whether or not it can be treated with hair transplantation?

Answer:
Alopecia Areata is an auto-immune disease that only in the later burned out stages can possibly be corrected by hair transplants. If transplants are placed in an area of active disease, the body will essentially reject the implanted hair follicles.
