Hirsutism in a fifty-eight-year-old woman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Hirsutism is the presence of excess terminal hair in females in a male-like pattern. Although there are several causes of hirsutism, androgen-secreting ovarian tumors are presumed to be a rare cause of hirsutism. Here we submit the case report of a female who presented with hirsutism and was eventually found to have an ovarian tumor secreting androgen.
