BACKGROUND Antineoplastic treatment for breast cancer is frequently associated with alopecia. Increasingly, changes in the texture and shape of regrowing hair after chemotherapy have been reported, without evaluation on a scientific basis. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides highly reproducible measurements of hair shaft parameters. OBJECTIVES This study aims to evaluate hair shaft alterations using OCT in chemotherapy-induced alopecia and in patients taking tamoxifen. METHODS The… CONTINUE READING
