  • excess hair
Clinical Information
  • A disorder characterized by hair density or length beyond the accepted limits of normal in a particular body region, for a particular age or race.
  • Excessive hair growth at inappropriate locations, such as on the extremities, the head, and the back. It is caused by genetic or acquired factors, and is an androgen-independent process. This concept does not include hirsutism which is an androgen-dependent excess hair growth in women and children.
  • Generalized or localized hair growth of abnormal length and density. It may be congenital or acquired (e.g., drug-induced).
