          Abstract

          Plasma testosterone (T), androstenedione (A), follicle-stimulating hormone, (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin (PRL), and urinary 17-ketosteroids (17-CS) have been measured in 152 women complaining of acne and/or hirsutism. Mean plasma levels of T, A, LH, PRL, and urinary 17-CS were significantly increased as compared to controls. T and/or A were increased in 59% of the cases. T was higher in women with PRL > 16 µg/l as compared to women with PRL < 13 µg/l. Hirsutism had markedly decreased in 64% and acne in 84% of patients treated with cyproterone acetate.
