Does this word exist in Latin? It's formed in a Latin fashion, but from Greek roots, and apparently is used only in the medical term alopecia androgenetica. Either this is a New Latin word, or else it is only a part of a compound term in medicine, and therefore not a word at all (just as English "Sri Lanka" does not imply that "Sri" and "Lanka" are English words).

If this is not a Latin word, then all the inflected forms will also need to be deleted. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:06, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Please take a look at WT:RFC#User:Lycomedes. This issue is one of the main reasons I brought it to rfc. Chuck Entz (talk) 14:22, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
Deleted on the grounds that it's only used in one set phrase. Had that set phrase been a bluelink, I would have {{only-in}}-linked to it, like at [[diocotron]]. - -sche (discuss) 23:36, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
