Artwork of hirsutism of a womans body

Hirsutism. Illustration of a womans body, showing hirsutism (excessive hairiness) and various internal organs. At the top are the adrenal glands (yellow), located above the kidneys (red). Part of the uterus, a fallopian tube and an ovary can be seen in the pelvic area. Hirsutism is caused by abnormally high levels of male hormones in the blood, which stimulate growth of body hair in the same pattern as on a mans body. Several conditions can cause hirsutism, including adrenal hyperplasia (a rare genetic condition), adrenal tumour and polycystic ovary. The hair can be bleached or removed in various ways. Permanent removal is by electrolysis

Adrenal Body Excessive Hair Hirsutism Condition Disorder Health Care

This artwork showcases the intricate details of hirsutism, a condition characterized by excessive hairiness in women. The illustration depicts a woman's body, highlighting both the external manifestations of hirsutism and various internal organs. At the top, we can observe the adrenal glands in yellow, situated above the red-colored kidneys. Moving towards the pelvic area, part of the uterus, a fallopian tube, and an ovary come into view. Hirsutism arises from elevated levels of male hormones circulating in the bloodstream. Consequently, body hair growth follows a pattern similar to that seen on men. Numerous factors can contribute to this condition including rare genetic conditions like adrenal hyperplasia, adrenal tumors or polycystic ovary syndrome. However, there is hope for those affected as various methods exist to manage or eliminate unwanted hair caused by hirsutism. These range from bleaching techniques to temporary removal options such as waxing or shaving. For individuals seeking permanent solutions for their hirsutism concerns, electrolysis offers an effective method for long-lasting hair removal. Through this remarkable piece of art created by Science Photo Library not only do we gain insight into hirsutism but also appreciate its impact on women's health and well-being.
