dc.description.abstractA poor quality of life has been described in patients suffering from Alopecia Areata (AA). However, there is little evidence on how AA can impact on those living with patients. The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of AA on a cohabitant’s quality-of-life, mood status disturbances and sexual satisfaction. This is a cross-sectional study of AA patients and their cohabitants. Sociodemographic variables and disease severity, the quality of life, mood status disturbances and sexual dysfunction were collected using validated questionnaires. Eighty-four subjects were included in the study: 42 AA patients and 42 cohabitants. A poor quality of life and worse disease control in the patients were associated with a poorer quality of life of the family, higher scores of anxiety and depression, and the lower sexual satisfaction of cohabitants (p < 0.05). Anxiety and depression in patients were associated with worse family quality of life, higher rates of anxiety and less sexual satisfaction in cohabitants (p < 0.05). To conclude, AA seems to have an impact on the quality of life of cohabitants, leading to increased rates of anxiety, depression, a poorer quality of life, and reduced sexual satisfaction. In light of the results, a global approach for AA patients, including the care of the people who live with them, should be implemented.es_ES
