Telogen effluvium caused by COVID-19 in Elmhurst, New York: report of a cohort and review


The prevalence of telogen effluvium (TE) has increased during COVID-19. In this study we describe the clinical characteristics of patients with COVID-19-related TE and review the current literature on COVID-19-associated TE. We conducted a retrospective chart review of 66 patients, all of which had COVID-19 infection (confirmed by PCR or antibodies) and had either non-scarring hair loss or TE in Elmhurst, Queens. Our data suggest that this form of TE is similar to other forms of TE, after which many patients experience regrowth within several months.
