We have described hair fall in almost all the Ayurvedic literature as Khalitya. It has been included in Shiroroga by Acharya Charaka & Ashtanga hridayakar. I have done this inclusion based on Shtana (location) of diseases and the similarity of etiopathogenesis of.
Diseases. We clearly mentioned in Ashtanghridaya that nine diseases occurring on the outer part of the head over the scalp should be called shiroroga.
