1,233 Possible Causes for Hypertrichosis

  • Menopause

    OBJECTIVE: The Menopause Rating Scale (MRS) is one of the most frequently used instruments to evaluate menopausal symptoms; however, no cut-off score is given that would indicate the need for treatment. Our goal was to determine such a cut-off score on the MRS, using as a standard a woman's own perception[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

    J Clin Endocrin Metab . 2008;93:1105–1120. 35 Hirsutism must be distinguished from hypertrichosis, which is defined as generalized excessive vellus hair growth distributed[pediatrics.aappublications.org] Note: The use of eflornithine has been studied only on the face and adjacent involved areas under the chin of individuals with hypertrichosis; therefore, limit use of this[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Porphyria

    More severe skin disease is sometimes seen in PCT, with prominent lessons, darkening of exposed skin such as the face, and hypertrichosis : abnormal hair growth on the face[ippn.info] […] deficient activity of uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (UROD); manifests during infancy or early childhood with extreme photosensitivity, skin fragility in sun-exposed areas, hypertrichosis[pathologyoutlines.com] Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP) Diaper - Pink-stained or dark-stained urine Hair - Hypertrichosis, alopecia Eyes - Keratoconjunctivitis, vision loss Growth - Shortness[web.archive.org]

  • Acute Hepatic Porphyria

    […] photosensitivity leading to mutilating lesions, hemolytic anemia, splenomegaly, excessive urinary excretion of uroporphyrin and coproporphyrin, and invariably erythrodontia and hypertrichosis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Cutaneous manifestations Increased fragility of sun-exposed skin blistering and impaired healing ( blistering photosensitivity ) Healing results in scarring and milia formation Hypertrichosis[amboss.com] Other common symptoms may include thickening of the skin, hypo- and hyperpigmentation, hypertrichosis, cutaneous scarring, and deformities of the fingers, eyelids, lips, nose[mayomedicallaboratories.com]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    Non-specific cutaneous changes that can be seen in all mucopolysaccharidoses are thickened skin with a loss of elasticity on elbows and knees, rough hair and hypertrichosis[actasdermo.org]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    […] photosensitivity leading to mutilating lesions, hemolytic anemia, splenomegaly, excessive urinary excretion of uroporphyrin and coproporphyrin, and invariably erythrodontia and hypertrichosis[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] The affected areas of skin also tend to be fragile and show hyperpigmentation (excess pigment) and hypertrichosis (excess hair).[medicinenet.com] The signs may present from birth and include severe photosensitivity, brown teeth that fluoresce in ultraviolet light due to deposition of type one porphyrins and later hypertrichosis[house.wikia.com]

  • Adrenogenital Syndrome

    Persistent urogenital sinus (PUGS) is a congenital pathological condition characterized by an abnormal communication between the urethra and vagina, which has an estimated incidence of 0.6/10,000 female births. It could be the only known malformation or part of a syndrome. PUGS is commonly shown by a pelvic mass,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Basophil Adenoma

    Serotonin is involved in the control of ACTH secretion, possibly by stimulating corticotropin releasing factor secretion from the hypothalamus. Cushing's disease seems to be due to defective hypothalamic regulation of ACTH release from the pituitary gland. Cyproheptadine is a potent antagonist of serotonin and has[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Generalized Lipodystrophy

    Congenital generalized lipodystrophy (CGL) is a rare disease, the main symptoms of which are a reduction of systemic subcutaneous fat, characteristic facial features, hypertrichosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hypermetabolism, hyperhidrosis, loss of subcutaneous fat, muscular hypertrophy, acanthosis nigricans, hypertrichosis, and marked hypertriglyceridemia were also noted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lipoatrophy and hypertrichosis were obvious from birth in both cases.[ijpd.in]

  • Porphyria Cutanea Tarda

    Excess hair growth (hypertrichosis) was noted in the temporal and malar facial areas (Panel B).[nejm.org] Women more frequently had facial hypertrichosis (84.8%; p 0.004), affected areas other than the hands and face (33.3%; p 0.008), and pruritus (27.3%; p 0.041) compared with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Of our patients, 11.8% did not present the typical clinical onset of the disease, with facial hypertrichosis and hyperpigmentation the more frequent complaints in these cases[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
