Introduction: Hirsutism is a disease in which, women chin, upper lip, chest, abdomen, showing the terminal structure to increase hair growth in the male pattern of distribution as androgen sensitive back and thighs are seen. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as a simple inflammatory marker of response. Increased value of NLR cardiovascular venture in patients was found to be an indicator of poor prognosis. In our study, we aimed to determine the association between regardless of the etiology in patients with complaints of hirsutism, androgen levels in blood neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio.

Materials and methods: 248 patients admitted Hirsutism was examined. Hirsutism and menstrual histories menarche, number of pregnancies and live births and infertility history of individuals, were questioned. In addition, hair loss, acne was recorded as signs of hyperandrogenism. Patients FSH, LH, E2, PRL, DHEAS, 17-OHP, androstenedione, total testosterone, free testosterone and follicle tests were measured phase.

Results: The study included between 16–70 years (mean age 28.67±9.29 years) were enrolled 248 patients. Patients with (n=73) and without (n=175) hipeandrojenemi were compared. When the groups with and without hyperandrogenemia are compared there occured no statistically significant difference between the NLR (P>0.05). In contrast, significant differences were found between hematocrit levels (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The presence of hyperandrogenism in hirsutism clinical practice cases are being investigated. The relationship between hyperandrogenism and a parameter NLO which is an early used parameter may be guider to the detection of inflammatory or cardiovascular risk.
