Özet

Background and Design: The role of androgens in androgenetic alopecia (AGA) patogenesis is well known. Studies set forth that ultrasensitive serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) analysis could be a biochemical marker of hyperandrogenism in women with hirsutism. Serum PSA levels in women with AGA can be used as an indicator of the effect of androgens in target organs. The aim of this study was to investigate serum PSA levels in women with AGA.
