Hirsutism is a condition of unwanted, male-pattern hair growth in women. Hirsutism results in excessive amounts of stiff and pigmented hair on body areas where men typically grow hair like face, chest and back. The amount of body hair is mainly determined by genetic makeup. Hirsutism may arise from excess male hormones called androgens, primarily testosterone. Hirsutism may also be due to a family trait also. Hirsutism is stiff and pigmented body hair, appearing on the body where women don't commonly have hair mainly the face, chest and back. Due to high androgen levels cause hirsutism, other signs may develop over time, this is called virilization. Signs of virilization may include: deepening voice, balding, acne, decrease in breast size and enlargement of the clitoris. Hirsutism is caused by polycystic ovary syndrome, cushing's syndrome, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, tumors and medications.
