Atlas of Trichoscopy
We are engaged in the search and integration of the most relevant information in the world of trichology for native specialists and specialists in Eastern Europe. In collaboration with the team of the Ukrainian Hair Research Society and the world acknowledged leaders of hair science several monographs and almanacs dedicated to hair diseases have been created.
The term "trichoscopy" was first proposed in 2006 by the group of Professor Lidia Rudnicka. During the creation of this diagnostic direction, scientists have developed indicating trichoscopic markers of most trichopathologies, described the criteria for monitoring the activity of the disease and monitoring therapy based on the results of numerous original studies.

The monograph highlights a very wide range of issues: from the fundamentals of the hair follicle biology and modern methods of hair research to therapeutic approaches to the treatment of the most common trichological nosologies. The second edition of our book highlights the advanced achievements of recent years, which has contributed to a better understanding of aspects of the normal functioning of hair follicle various sections, as well as to clarify the pathogenesis of many trichopathologies, presents innovative methods for treating hair diseases and the results of research on the efficacy of known drugs.

It contains data on the latest achievements and scientific knowledge in the field of hair biology and clinical trichology, much attention is paid to scalp topical dermatosis. In particular, the issues of scarring alopecia, which is characterized by the irreversibility of the process and is a complex diagnostic and therapeutic task. Rare materials on the study of photosensitive dermatoses with localization on the scalp, as well as articles on the scalp aging and associated conditions, of particular social significance of which are pre-cancerous / cancerous diseases, are presented for you interest. The lack of a common opinion about the causes of the appearance and regularities of the course of alopecia areata makes the problem of studying the connections in the pathogenesis of this dermatosis an urgent one. Practicing dermatologists will be interested in the results of original studies of alopecia areata immunomorphology that will allow to develop pathogenetic approaches of therapy taking into account the stage of the pathological process.
One of our tasks is promotion of accessibility of European and world medicine, to elevate the professional level of specialists and to ensure them being informed about the latest achievements of foreign research in the field of dermatology. The Ukrainian Academy of Dermatovenereology has become one of the key organizers of the 17th Congress of the European Hair Research Society (EHRS2016), an ideological mastermind and ally. For better understanding of the scientific and practical information provided at the congress, as well as for those who could not attend the event, the Ukrainian organizers conducted a careful work on translation of the abstracts of all the reports presented at this meeting into Russian, which we publish in the issue symbolically dedicated to scalp diseases.
