Abstract: Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is the most common type of hair loss in adults, but it has been rarely reported in children. We report two cases of AGA in two siblings, aged 6 and 8, whose mother had the same condition, without any association with other skin diseases or abnormalities in endocrinologic examinations.
