[Extract] Hirsutism as the consequence of hyperandrogenemia and/or androgen-hypersensitivity may be associated with the elevated risk of insulin resistance (IR), cardiovascular diseases, and subsequent potentiality of metabolic disorders. It is well established that the androgen sensitivity of the pilosebaceous units (PSU) of different skin areas varies greatly in the hirsute women, and therefore, some areas are stronger contributors to the overall hirsutism score while some have low impact on the total score, for example, the more hyperandrogenemia leads to the more terminal hair intensity in the regions lateral to the midline like chin and upper lip [6]. We conducted this study to determine the certain skin regions which may be the stronger predictors of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in the affected women.
