The problem of hirsutism in women


Women commonly complain of excess facial or body hair. There are generally no other abnormal physical findings and the relevance of other symptoms, especially those related to the menstrual cycle, may be unclear. The theme of androgen excess provides an explanation for the sign and various symptoms, and suggests certain pathology. Rational therapy can be based on and understanding of the hormonal processes involved in the development of secondary sexual hair. Treatment of simple hirsutism is well tolerated even in prolonged courses, and in most cases produces a satisfactory cosmetric result.
