Context: Several classifications for pattern hair loss (PHL) have been used over the years. The Norwood-Hamilton classification for men and Ludwig's classification for women is used commonly, but they have their limitations. Aims: The objective of the following study is to evaluate the efficacy of the basic and specific (BASP) classification in Indian populations . Subjects and Methods: We used the BASP classification to classify the PHL in the patients visiting our out-patient department in the period from June 2012 to May 2013. 763 patients were classified out of which 313 were females and 450 were males . Results: The majority of the female patients were in the 3-5 th decade of life and in males were in 4-6 th decade. Conclusions: The BASP classification is, easily remembered, reproducible classification for the diagnosis and treatment for both male and female pattern alopecia.
