The Ferriman-Gallwey score is a method of evaluating and quantifying hirsutism in women, a condition where there is too much body hair.
Additional recommended knowledge
Hair growth is rated from 0 (no growth of terminal hair) to 4 (complete and heavy cover), in nine locations, giving a maximum score of 36. In Caucasian women, a score of 8 or higher is regarded as indicative of androgen excess. With other ethnic groups, the amount of hair expected for that race should be considered.
