Abstract

Our objective was to develop clinical practice guidance for the evaluation of hirsutism in premenopausal women. The Skin Academy is led by an international interdisciplinary team of experts, and aims to use the latest scientific and clinical data in selected dermatological diseases, to promote awareness, education and best clinical practice, thus improving patient care. The Skin Academy is an international platform designed to drive and develop education and awareness programmes, and to transfer scientific knowledge in dermatology across Europe and wider geographical areas. Consensus was guided by systematic review and discussion of current clinical practice across Europe during several group meetings of The Skin Academy, supported by conference calls, and e-mail communications. The outcome of the discussions was an evaluation form to be used by the clinician to help evaluate a patient presenting with excessive hair growth. This roundtable expert opinion consensus paper, and the Diagnostic Evaluation Form it contains, is presented for discussion by the wider dermatology community.
