Alopecia areata: This condition is an autoimmune reaction that causes the hair to fall out in patches. It is not contagious or dangerous. Aa can localize to the eyebrows and may regrowth spontaneously. Shots of a dilute kenalog (triamcinolone) solution may be useful. Aa can rarely be associated with thyroid problems, pernicious anemia, diabetes and vitiligo.

Could a head injury from a car crash cause loss of executive function?

Could a head injury from a car crash cause loss of executive function?

Head injury: Yes. A head injury in a car crash is likely to be at least a concussion (in which the violent impact forces the soft brain tissue to decelerate abruptly against the skull). Concusions cause regional brain disturbances, particularly in cognitive functions associated with the brain cortex, including executive function. The type of symptoms depend on the location of brain contusion.
