Hirsutism - Definition


Definition


Hirsutism defines abnormally extensive hair growth on a woman in areas that are typically with no or little hair growth. Women with hirsutism exhibit hair growth on the chest, back, face, or abdomen. This condition is caused by an increase in male hormones, androgens, and is often associated with acne, abnormal menstrual cycle, deep voice, and well-developed muscle mass. Hirsutism is a symptom of ovarian or adrenal gland tumors, with Cushing's disease. It can also be the result of the menopause or medication.
