Kabir: a Baseball Cap to protect his head (Chapter 3; Case Study)

  • Kabir is a 14 year old boy who has had Alopecia Areata since the age of 4.
  • It is localized to the scalp accompanied with trichotillomania.


  • In a little over three years, the condition will disappear.
  • Progressively, he gets over feelings of being torn between two cultures and guilt; the state of his mind corresponds to that of his hair.


  • This chapter emphasizes on the many and worrying psychological tests which were done at baseline.
    • Indeed he was focused on death and deeply depressed. Tests done by blotting ink on paper always evoked negative images (dragons, a run over cat, a dead butterfly)
