Look closely If there are any getuigen broken hair, petechiae. Confirm whether she is right handed and it's suffering from any psychiatric illness or OCD . Bcoz it is looking like TRICHOTILLOMANIA

Waoooo. What a great diagnosis. After getting your answer I made the phone call and have come to know that she is a known psychiatric patient and keep pulling her hair.

This might not be alopecia areata In alopecia areata there will be absolute patch of baldness . But here there are hair shafts . More over there are no well defined margins , it is diffuse . Patient is known case of some psychiatric illness. So mostly in favour of trichotillomania .@Raman Kumar @Johnson Sameer
