Unfortunately, there is a 99% chance that your kids will develop the disease at some point in their life. This is a medical condition that involves the rapid loss of hair. Learn more from http://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/gard/614/alopecia-universalis/resources/1.

Alopecia is inherited from the mother's side. So look at your wife's father's head.
