I have a patient who insists she's losing a bunch of hair because of IT, and I don't think this is the cause as I have never seen it, and I can't find anything in the literature to support it. A work up for any autoimmune or other cause has been negative. Have you ever seen this? Thank you.
Thank you for your inquiry.
No, I have never seen hair loss attributed to immunotherapy, nor is there any evidence for this side effect in the literature that I could find.
Thank you again for your inquiry.
