Abstract: 
Background and Aim: Alopecia areata is a non-scarring hair disorder. Trace elements imbalance (like zinc) has been reported as its triggering factor. In this study we compared serum zinc level in alopecia areata patients with normal values.Methods: Twenty-three female and 19 male patients with alopecia areata were recruited and their serum zinc levels were assessed using absorption spectrometery. Chi squared t and ANOVA tests were used for statistical analysis.Results: Sixteen patients with more extensive and prolonged disease, had serum zinc level lower than normal (70 mg/dL).The means of serum zinc levels in patients and normal population were 81.88 mg/dL and 83.5 mg/dL, respectively.This difference was not significant (P=0.668). The means of serum zinc level in different types of alopecia areata were not significantly different (P>0.05). There was an association between serum zinc level and disease duration (P=0.022).Conclusion: Patients with more severe forms of alopecia areata had lower serum zinc level than other forms of the disease.
