Abstract: To compare the clinical efficacy of 1 550 nm fractional erbium-glass laser versus triamcinolone acetonide ac-etate in the treatment of alopecia areata.A total of 72 patients with alopecia areata were divided into two groups,test group (n=36)treated with 1 550 nm fractional erbium-glass laser,and control group (n=36)treated with intralesion-al triamcinolone acetonide.Both treatments were given once every 2 weeks for 8 consecutive weeks.After 12 weeks,the Cure rate and total response rate were 80.5% and 94.4% in the test group,respectively,compared to 40.0% and 66. 7% in the control group,respectively.A significant increase was observed in the cure rate and response rate in the test group compared with the control group (P<0.01 and P<0.01).3 subjects (8.8%)in the treatment group were recur-rent and 5 subjects (25%)in the control group were recurrent after 6 months.No significant difference was observed be-tween the two groups in the recurrence rate(P>0.05).The adverse effects rate was 8.3% in the test group,compared to36.6% in the control group.A significant increase was observed in the adverse effects rate in the test group compared with the control group (P<0.01).1 550 nm fractional erbium-glass laser has a notable therapeutic effect on alopecia areata.
