Abstract

Objective: Hirsutism is a common endocrinological clinical problem seen in women at reproductive age. Although its cause is usually a benign condition, it may rarely be an indication of a more serious endocrine disease, such as Cushing syndrome or an androgen-secreting tumor The objective of this study was to investigate the clinical features of hirsutism and its etiologic factors in women with hirsutism at reproductive age.
