it is a genetic disorder
excessive hair growth
Minoxidil, a medicine for preventing hair loss, is thought to trigger acquired localized hypertrichosis. It is one and only way to medicaid from hypertrichosis.
There are several depending on the type. Congenital hypertrichosis lanuginosa may be caused by an inverse mutation on the 8q chromosome. Congenital generalized hypertrichosis has a dominant pattern of inheritance and has been linked to chromosome xq24-q27. Congenital generalized hypertrichosis terminalis is thought to be caused by genetic changes on chromosome 17. The gene MAP2K6 may be a factor contributing to this condition.
The integumentary system
No! Werewolves are myths that people have their own views on, and what some people have put in books, TV shows and films. Hypertrichosis is a disease where hair growth on the body in an amount considered abnormal. And although extensive cases of hypertrichosis have been called werewolf syndrome it does not mean that they are werewolves.
Hi Per Try Ko Siss
Hypertrichosis is a condition in which there is an abnormal growth of hair on a person. It can be a congenital condition or a person can get it later on in life. Since there is no cure for this condition, its management can involve diagnosing the causes and prescribing medications or hair removal treatments.
hirsutism (hypertrichosis) - female excessive growth of hair....
Hirsutism is the condition of abnormal hairiness.hirsutism, or (in the extreme) hypertrichosis
Hypertrichosis very rare disorder also called werewolf syndrome.
If you are refering to Hypertrichosis, when the body grows abnormally large amounts of hair, then yes. "Werewolf Syndrome" Is genetic and is thought to be caused by a mutation in one of the chromosomes.
Hypertrichosis is a condition that causes excessive hair growth over the entire body and has been linked to the belief in werewolves in less enlightened times.
Hirsutism or hypertrichosis is the name of the condition related to growth of hair in excess of what is normalHirsutismHirsutism
Hirsuitism is excessive growth of body or facial hair, especially in women. Hypertrichosis is a rarer, more general excessive growth of body hair.
Hypertrichosis is an abnormal amount of hair growth on the body. It is nicknamed the werewolf disease because they become hairy and can look like werewolves. There is no disease to become a werewolf. Werewolves are fantasy.
If a teenager still has Lanugo hair, they may have a nutritional or eating disorder, or hypertrichosis, where the full Vellus hair never fully develops. In the case of the eating disorders, usually the patient receiving all of their proper vitamins and nutrients will solve the problem, while Lanugo hypertrichosis will typically recede until the teen only has Lanugo hair where regular adult Vellus hair would typically grow. Alternatively, you could shave the kid.
If you are referring to Ambras Syndrome, also known as Hypertrichosis, it is a genetic defect that gets passed down from parents to their children. So you can't catch it if that is what you were wondering. It causes abnormal hair growth especially on the face.
Hirsutism is the medical term meaning localized abnormal hairiness. It usually refers to male-pattern hair growth on a female. In contrast, hypertrichosis is all-over excess hair growth.
Since one X chromosome in each cell is randomly inactivated at some point during development, a woman heterozygous for hypertrichosis would have varying regions of patchy hair if the alleles responsible for the trait were located on the X chromosome. Variation would look similar to the varied tortoise shell coat color pattern on female cats, where the presence of yellow and black (red and gold/blue and cream) is controlled by X chromosome inactivation.
I shaved my face one time, and the hair grew back to full density (no skin visible) in about two weeks. It's not worth it. I just accepted the condition, started thinking positively, and learned to like it!
The syndrome is not a medical condition - it is a hereditary disorder passed on by genes. Since the condition shows itself in many different forms, the only 'treatment' would be expensive (and extensive) sessions of laser treatment to reduce the amount of visible hair.
