Abstract

Por sua importância estética, os cabelos freqüentemente são alvo de interferências sociais, como é o caso de penteados e tinturas bizarras, e por vezes de auto-agressões. Os atos auto-agressivos mais freqüentes são: tricotilomania, tricotemnomania, tricofagia, tricoteiromania, pseudoalopecia da coçadura, tricocriptomania, tricorrexomania e plica neuropática. Neste artigo o autor discute detalhadamente as características clínicas e propedêuticas de cada doença, dando ênfase aos aspectos psiquiátricos dos pacientes.<br>Due to its aesthetic importance, our hair is often a target of social manifestations, as in the case of bizarre hairstyling and hair dyes and sometimes even self-aggression.
