Version type

Hypertrichosis - a disease which manifests itself in excessive hair growth, not characteristic of the area of skin not corresponding to gender and/or age.

Clinically distinguish congenital (General and limited) and acquired forms of hypertrichosis.

Depending on at what stage and where on the body the disease is located, there are two types of hypertrichosis:

  • General, when a uniform hairiness gradually covers the whole body sick. Can only be innate. Formed from germinal hair that was not able to go to lanugo;
  • local hair grow too densely and intensely on just one area of the skin. May be subdivided into subspecies: prothoracic; facial; lumbar; Nebesny – when some moles that contain too much melatonin (the hormone of colour of skin) covered with hard, coarse hair.
