CONCLUSION: With caveats in mind, our study identifies this osteopontin-derived peptide as an effective, novel inhibitory principle for human hair growth ex vivo and in vivo, which deserves systematic clinical testing in hirsutism and hypertrichosis.

You "Cantu": Multidisciplinary Collaboration Resulting in Successful Orthognathic Surgery. Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 2019 Aug 11;:1055665619868043 Authors: Kurian C, Pinamonti G, Starling Hughes S, Martin J, Lypka M Abstract Cantú syndrome (CS) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by a heterozygous pathogenic variant in the ABCC9 or KCNJ8 gene. The disorder is characterized by congenital generalized hypertrichosis, coarse acromegaloid facial features (broad nasal bridge, epicanthal folds, wide mouth, macroglossia), skeletal abnormalities (calvarial thickening, metaphyseal flar...

Most cases of excessive hair loss and unwanted hair growth (e.g., effluvium, alopecia, hirsutism, hypertrichosis) result in part from major disturbances in the cyclic transformation of hair follicles (HFs), namely in their switch from active growth and pigmented hair shaft production (anagen) to apoptosis-driven HF involution (catagen) (Oh et  al., 2016; Paus and Cotsarelis, 1999). It is now clear that this switch is profoundly influenced by complex neuroendocrine pathways, which still await systematic therapeutic targeting (Paus et al., 2014).

Conclusions: Since Cushing's syndrome is a rare disease and it is often diagnosed later in life, data on the frequency of skin findings are limited and sparse in the literature. In the comparison of endogenous Cushing's and exogenous Cushing's groups, acne, hypertrichosis, and fungal infections were found more frequently in the exogenous Cushing's group and hirsutism more frequently in the endogenous Cushing's group.
