NIH Rare Diseases:43 Hair-an syndrome is a condition that affects women. it is characterized by hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, and acanthosis nigricans. insulin resistance is a condition in which the body produces insulin but does not use it properly. this causes the pancreas to produce more insulin. high levels of insulin stimulate the ovaries to make too much androgen, leading too excessive  hair growth, acne, and irregular periods. insulin resistance can also lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and excessive growth and darkening of the skin (aconthosis nigricans). women with hair-an may be born with insulin resistance or acquire it over time. last updated: 5/27/2011

MalaCards: Hair-an Syndrome, also known as hyperandrogenism , insulin resistance , and acanthosis nigricans, is related to obesity and ovarian stromal hyperthecosis. An important gene associated with Hair-an Syndrome is INS (insulin). Affiliated tissues include heart, pancreas and skin.
