1. Serum levels of 3alpha-androstanediol glucuronide in young women with polycystic ovary syndrome, idiopathic hirsutism and in normal subjects.
Match Strength: 9.508
OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to assess the role of 3alpha-androstanediol glucuronide (3alpha-diolG) as the marker of peripheral androgen action in the young women with hirsutism diagnosed as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), in patients with idiopathic hirsutism (IH) and in normal non-hirsute women. STUDY DESIGN: Fifty-nine young women with mean age 21.90+/-3.52 years suffered from hirsutism were included in the study. Among these 59 hirsute women 31 women with mean age 21.60+/-3.56 years were diagnosed as PCOS and 28 women with mean age 22.20+/-3.59 years were classified as idiopathic ... Read More »

Although patients affected are often very disturbed by the cutaneous manifestations, including acne, hirsutism, alopecia, obesity, and acanthosis nigricans, the clinical manifestations of PCOS ramify far beyond the skin.

3. Laser and light treatments for pilonidal cysts.
Match Strength: 3.879
Pilonidal (nest of hair) cysts are foreign body reactions accompanied by chronic inflammation. Current accepted treatments include the traditional conservative treatments or aggressive surgery. However, these modalities exhibit a high rate of disease recurrence, especially in patients with hirsutism; therefore, affected patients often are subjected to repeated surgical interventions. This report describes 5 patients treated with either a diode laser or intense pulsed light (IPL), which produced results leaving the patients recurrence free. Four of 5 patients remained recurrence free for 7 ... Read More »
