The book has been divided into 3 separate sections for the conveniences of reading -
- first part dealing with effects of suppression in skin diseases,
- second part containing case records with dosage and follow up and
- third part discussing on the constitutional cure of alopecia areata with case records to guide through its management.

About the Author
James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died April 2, 1901. Dr. Burnett attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865. Alfred Hawkes converted him to homeopathy in 1872 (in Glasgow). In 1876 he took his MD degree. Burnett was one of the first to speak about vaccination triggering illness. This was discussed in his book, Vaccinosis, published in 1884. Along with other nosodes, he introduced the remedy Baccillinum. A prodigious writer he published over twenty books in his lifetime. His book, Fifty Reasons for Being a Homoeopath (1888), is of particular note for beginning homeopaths. J.H. Clarke, Robert T. Cooper, and James Compton Burnett together formed the 'Cooper Club'. This regular meeting of leading British homeopaths was the source of many of the symptoms in Clarke's Dictionary of Materia Medica. Clarke says of Burnett, "during the last twenty years Burnett has been the most powerful, the most fruitful, and the most original force in homeopathy".Â
