Trichology is the branch of medicine that has to do with hair: its anatomy, growth and diseases. Actually in Italy many quacks who call themselves “trichologists” deal with hair problems which are of medical and/or surgical competence. The judgement which was delivered on September 27th 1996 at the court of justice of Parma is reported: three so called “trichologists” were sentenced guilty because of illegal practice of medicine.
We like to add that three dermatological associations (SIDEV, ADOI, SIDCO) and the medical association of Parma were plaintiffs in this trial.
