Hirsutism is condition of excess terminal hair growth in women in a pattern more typical for men. Androgen-dependent growth areas which are affected include upper lip, cheeks, chin, central chest, breasts, lower abdomen, and groin. 

This altered growth pattern of hair may be associated with other signs of "virilization" which include temporal balding, masculine habitus, deepening of the voice, amenorrhea, and other endocrine changes. Acne is an additional sign.
