We report the results of a controlled trial on 119 patients affected by patchy alopecia areata involving less than 40% of the scalp. The statistical analysis showed no differences between the results obtained using squaric acid dibutylester, diphencyprone, minoxidil, and placebo in the treatment of this form of alopecia.
