Abstract

The degree of hair growth of 64 hirsute women was clinically graded. The patients were divided into two groups with respect to the ratio between the serum luteinizing hormone (LH) and the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). The two groups did not differ in terms of the grade of hirsutism, serum testosterone (T), calculated free testosterone (FT(c)), androstenedione (A), dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEAS), sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), estradiol, or cortisol levels. In patients with a LH/FSH ratio of 3.0 or less (n=49), FT(c) and A correlated well (ρ 0.49, p
