Chemotherapy-Induced Anagen Effluvium

Chemotherapy or radiation therapy can disrupt the anagen (growth) phase leading to anagen effluvium. A decrease in anagen-phase hairs leads to rapid hair loss over the entire scalp that becomes noticeable several weeks after therapy. Hair generally grows back once the therapy is stopped.
