Although topical corticosteroids are recommended for treatment of patchy alopecia areata,1,2 there is no good double-blind, controlled trial to support this treatment. We therefore designed this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to assess the efficacy of 0.25% desoximetasone cream in this disease.
