PENA IRUN, Álvaro; GONZALEZ SANTAMARIA, Ana; CAVADAS LOPEZ, Ana  and  GARCIA ESPINOSA, Rafael. Hirsutism.: An esthetic problem in Adolescents. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp.70-72. ISSN 1699-695X.

Hirsutism has a prevalence of 8% in women of reproductive age, with significant esthetic repercussions in some cases. History and physical examination are of vital importance in the diagnostic work-up of these patients. Our challenge, in addition to identifying those cases with serious underlying disease, is to provide the most effective treatment possible to prevent psychological problems.

Keywords : Polycistic Ovary Syndrome; Hirsutism; Hyperandrogenism.
