Anagen effluvium

Anagen effluvium - Anagen effluvium is severe and sudden hair loss that occurs within days or weeks of taking certain drugs (usually chemotherapy drugs). Hair loss is more extensive than telogen effluvium and can include eyebrows, eyelashes, and other areas of the body. In addition re-grown hair may not be as thick as the original hair. See a list of drugs that may cause hair loss.
