Model Occupational over exposure and correlation with hair loss (alopecia areata)

Occupational over-exposure to RF in 3 cases seen at the out-patient clinic, Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia. Patients presented with run-down symptoms of neck strain associated with throbbing headache, irritability, loss of appetite, fatigue, memory difficulties, and numbness of extremities. They also presented with alopecia areata (loss of hair on head and body) which the authors suggest to be causally linked to the radiation exposure.
